The Adventures of Prince Achmed
A ground-breaking work of stop-motion animation. Based on several 'Arabian Nights' tales, the film follows Prince Achmed's quest to defeat the African magician. Beautifully-flowed animation shadows the screen for audience enjoyment over the story. Beautiful and enchanting. I give it a 4.5/5.
Now THAT was absolute MAGIC!!! Had not intended to watch this, especially after struggling through "Gerald McBoing Boing" (with all due respect to your guest host, the technique may have been unprecedented, but left me completely flat and totally bored.) When along came this beautiful film. Done in silloutte, you would think that technique would leave me flat and bored, but nothing could be further from the truth. Instead I was completely enveloped by this beautiful, artistic technique. A truly enchanting film, which befitting its source material, takes you on a magic carpet ride! Play it again Sam!
How can you rate perfection ? Director Lotte Reininger, Alexander Karadan, Walter Ruttman and Berthod Bartosch collaborate their skills to create a Classic so Brilliant not even time could prevent this beautiful and magical film from escaping this mortal coil. The Adventures of Prince Achmed are filmed in rich vibrant colors that beg the veiwer to want more. The artistry of the silhouettes deep in detail and yet fragile in design are unique and captivating.Fantastic music track ! I cannot overstate this wonderfully orchestrated animated film, it is a MUST See! Told in 5 Acts. Children must be able to read the subtitles. 5 stars out of 5, but easily could have been TEN of TEN. Runtime of about 65 minutes. Great Holiday Film !
