Fimfarum 2 Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Czech animators [[Performer~P365370~Aurel Klimt~aurelklimt]], [[Performer~P106913~Vlasta Pospísilová~vlastapospisilova]], [[Performer~P474622~Jan Balej~janbalej]], and [[Performer~P106727~Bretislav Pojar~bretislavpojar]] -- all giants of the Czech puppet film movement -- each helm one segment of the anthology film Fimfarum 2. A sequel to the original [[Feature~V286016~Fimfarum~fimfarumjanawericha]], this feature provides four additional animated episodes adapted from the short stories of Czech fantasist writer [[Performer~P75550~Jan Werich~janwerich]], in the same vein as the earlier film. The first segment, "Three Sisters and One Ring," unfolds in Bohemia in the late '20s. Three sisters jointly discover a ring, and decide that it will go to the sister who humiliates her husband the most. The second segment, "The Hunchback of Damascus," observes three identical hunchbacks, all gifted swordsmen, and each lame in the right foot and blind in the left eye. The third, "Uncle, Why Is the Sea Salty?," dramatizes the experiences of two brothers (a rich one and a poor one), to whom Lucifer bequeaths a magic mill. And in the fourth segment, "Tom Thumb," the title character transcends his dark origins to embark on adventures with The King and the family of The Snow Eater. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
