One Night in City (2007)





Jedné noci v jednom městě is a puppet film composed of stories based an array of themes, all of them bizarre, oddly grotesque and fascinating. The film’s main players are traditional three dimensional puppets. All the things that can happen during one night in a city. Do you know what happens when somebody sews on another person’s ear? Can you meet a genie in Žižkov at night who can make all your wishes come true? Do you think there are places where time stands still? Do you know what can interfere with an insects’ circus, what are the goals of a city huntsman and what his neighbours get excited about? Can a carp make friends with a tree? Yes, indeed.
