    this film should not be shown at 8:15 am (CST) !!! It is wonderful in every respect and deserves a more prominent time for showing - either beginning with or concluding with time for full discussion by experts. The usual films shown and glorified in the "the essentials" segments are rubbish. This film IS an ESSENTIAL; it is film as art, and art in film. If children saw this - even with its elements of anti-semitic references - they would be transfixed, and moved to wonder and grasp what art and creativity are all about. Animated film can be, and is, special and moving and must be given greater display - be it the work of Lotte Reiniger or the 1960's work of animated film from Zagreb. In addition, Reiniger and her husband were artists of the "left" in 1920's Weimar Germany, working with Brecht, Kurt Weill, Paul Hindemith - and with ties to Jean Renoir. The film of "the left" in Germany of the 20's deserves serious treatment, as well.

    Now that we've reached a time in film history where it seems anything is possible and very little is really "special" anymore, it's mind-boggling to imagine the patience and invention it took 90-years ago to create this movie. From tediously cutting-out the many, many delicate pieces of paper, to carefully composing & manipulating them one-frame at a time before the camera, you just know this can only be achieved with inexhaustible love! Anyone raised to expect a non-stop, MTV-ish rollercoaster ride may be unimpressed and bored, it takes patience and love to appreciate this lovely & very special movie.

    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.

  • Absolute MAGIC!!!

    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!

  • GENIUS! (1927)

    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 !
