Synopsis:
Visionary Czech filmmaker Karel Zeman is recognised as one of the great masters of 20th Century fantasy cinema for his innovative combination of live-action and animation, along with the use of ingenious special effects. Often described as the 'Czech Melies', his work has been a profound influence on generations of filmmakers from Jan Svankmajer to Tim Burton, Terry Gilliam to the Quay Brothers and Wes Anderson. 'A Jester's Tale' is one of Zeman's most celebrated achievements: a bold black comedy following the adventures of a ploughboy press-ganged into service on the battlefields of the devastating Thirty Years' War.
Co-scripted by Pavel Juracek (Ikarie XB1, Daisies), this startlingly inventive film emerges as a sharp satire on war and human nature itself.
