1988. Svankmajer's adaptation of Alice in Wonderland mixes animation and live action to create a dreamlike world, but it is not simply a kid's film.

Alice watches a stuffed and mounted rabbit come to life in her playroom and follows it through a magical drawer into a strange world that resembles a 19th-century toy store come to life.

Svankmajer uses familiar objects in unfamiliar ways, giving a fantasy quality to the banal (and the not so banal) while tipping the dream logic to the edge of nightmare. The movie may have a somewhat disturbing effect on the viewer.

Description

Jan Svankmajer, the Czech master of animation, has fulfilled a lifetime ambition in this personal interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland.” Svankmajer’s “Alice” remains true to the absurdity of Carroll’s original, but bears the stamp of his own distinctive style and obsessions. Combining techniques of animation and live action, he gives to this classic tale of childhood fantasies a new and fascinating dimension.
