Pohadka o Honzikovi a Marence 1980
The Tale of Honzik and Marenka employs an ingenious animation technique using cut-out figures that is typical of the creative genius of Karel Zeman, the writer and director of this 66-minute film. The sophistication of the technique, and a sprinkling of puns and twists in the story line that bring out a moral parable on the meaning of liberty, justice, and other social issues, make the fairy tale enjoyable for adults as well as children. The story itself centers on a poor shepherd who overcomes enormous obstacles, including one ugly physical transformation, with the help of the forest elves and their magic. The shepherd is in love with a beautiful woman - in reality, a fairy changed into a beautiful young woman - and he is out to gain her affections and marry her.
