"Mitte der 50er Jahre. Der Schrottplatz eines Hüttenkombinats bei Kladno dient als Umerziehungslager für "bourgeoise Elemente" und Feinde des Systems. Die einstigen Werte - vom Christus am Kreuz bis zur Schreibmaschine - werden zu Maschinen für den sozialistischen Aufbau umgeschmolzen. [...] Ein zwischen poetischer Gestaltung, überzeugender humaner Parteinahme und folkloristischen Momenten angelegtes filmisches Meisterwerk, das mit subtil-subversivem Humor die Fassaden von Politik und Ideologie durchlöchert. Virtuos verbinden sich bissige politische Kommentare mit warmherziger Sympathie für die Menschen." [film-dienst.de]

Baron Prášil( Visual )

2 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in Czech and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1961, Karel Zeman made the finest film adaptation of the outlandish tales of Baron Munchausen, made famous in the 1786 book by Gottfried August Bürger. The incredible adventures of the bragging Baron come to life in a film celebrating the courage and imagination of dreamers and poets. Zeman took inspiration from the engravings in the 1862 edition, the work of one of the greatest illustrators of the 19th century Gustave Doré. The director achieved a visually captivating style by color-tinting the original black and white footage. In the movie, Munchausen's humorous narrative contrasts with the romantic tale of a modern fantasist Tony, who becomes the good Baron's rival in love."--Container

The coming of the Nazis pushes his eccentricity into madness, perverting his already twisted ambitions and offering him the opportunity to live out his fantasies in horrifying fashion.
