Als Lehrling kommt der Waisenjunge Krabat in die Mühle am schwarzen Wasser. Zwölf Müllersburschen erlernen dort von ihrem Meister nicht nur das Müllerhandwek, sondern auch die schwarze Kunst. Und so wird Krabat vom Bettelknaben zum Zauberlehrling. Doch das ist nicht das einzige Geheimnis, das die Mühle und ihren Meister umgibt: Alljährlich in der Neujahrsnacht muss einer der Jungen sterben - an Stelle des Meisters, dem dadurch ein weiteres Lebensjahr geschenkt wird. Als es Tonda, seinen Freund und Beschützer, trifft, nimmt Krabat den langen Kampf mit den finsteren Mächten auf. (Quelle: Umschlag)
Bláznova kronika = A jester's tale( Visual )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in Czech and Multiple languages and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Thirty Years' War is seen from the point of view in this satirical slapstick comedy that combines engravings, old cartoons, montages, special effects, and film. The positions of both sides of the religious war are fair game for biting satirical jabs. Petr Kostka plays a peasant who is pressed to join one side before being captured by the enemy and mistaken for a Duke. Matej (Miloslav Holub) can change sides quickly with his reversible cloak. Lenka (Emille Vasaryova) disguises herself as a jester to avoid the conflict and gives her comments about the pompous futility on both sides of the conflict

Baron Prášil( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in Czech and held by 8 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
