A Midsummer Night's Dream @ Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI)


Replacing Shakespeare's poetry with puppetry and dance, Jirí Trnka's film adaptation approaches the text with the same kind of joyous transcendence as Mendelssohn's musical variation on the same source material. Scored by Václav Trojan, Trnka's last feature is a beautiful, balletic delight: and truly a dream of a film. Indeed, the director earns his common acclaim as the "Disney of Eastern Europe" for this magical work.
