Alice, whose original name was Něco z Alenky (Something from Alice), was the adaptation to the director, illustrator, sculptor and writer of Czech origin Jan Švankmajer developed and released in 1988.
This film is based on the novel by Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865), but unlike other adaptations was filmed in stop motion using puppets, illustrations and stuffed animals, so the film is more than a narrative-visual experience nature, ie transforms it into a hybridization of artistic techniques that recreate the story.
Jan Švankmajer has also directed films of excellent quality as Faust (1994), Conspirators of Pleasure (1996) and Šílení (2005), as well as various short films internationally recognized by its excellent production and narrative. If you have not seen the movie, it’s never too late; if you’ve seen, share your opinion with us.
