Czechoslovakia (MIFF 1984 )

Two tales by Edgar Allan Poe and Villiers de L'Isle Adam provided the inspiration for the story of human suffering and people's indomitable hope. The combined film method
used and subtle art conception guarantee an unusual presentation of these classical literary works.
