Look Out!

Czechoslovakia, 1960 (MIFF 1961, Programme 4)

Director: Jirí Brděcka

This sharp little anti-war film carries a surpisingly lasting after-effect, Between a prologue and epilogue of war, a bitterly humorous "thumb-nail''' history of weapons is given in an animated cartoon of unusual style and originality.
