SYNOPSIS

The Emperor’s Nightingale is a loose adaptation of the famous fairy tale The Nightingale by Hans Christian Andersen. Jiří Trnka and his colleagues framed the action within the dream of a child, which allowed for great freedom as regards the usage of visual art and narrative motifs. The animated work by Jiří Trnka is a pinnacle of his early period as a filmmaker.
