The Blue Bird (1918) DVD5
This is the second film adaptation of Belgian writer Maurice Maeterlinck's eponymous play, which was created in 1908 in Moscow.
Maeterlinck’s play tells of a brother and sister, Tyltyl and Myltyl, who live humbly with their woodcutter father and hard-working mother, Mr. and Mrs. Tyl, their dog Tylo and their cat Tylette. One night the children observe a great celebration taking place on the other side of the woods, at a rich family’s home. When they fall asleep, they share a dream in which the Fairy Berylune, who resembles their neighbor whose daughter is sick, sends them on a quest for a blue bird that will bring happiness and ultimate power and knowledge to all humanity. The Fairy gives the boy a magic hat that allows him to see the souls inhabiting all things. They all go on a journey to find the blue bird of happiness, accompanied by a dog, a cat, and the spirits of Milk, Light, Fire, Bread, and Sugar.
