Yugoslav-Czech fantasy/parable about a number of small children who discover and live on an enchanted island -- the first live action feature from Academy Award winning animator/director/writer Dusan Vukotic.
I saw this movie when I was a child and always remembered it - hoping that it would eventually be available to rent or own (still not). It is a marvelous fantasy about a group of children who go to live on an island without any grown-ups. There is a remarkable technique used if I recall for the way they travel. All that remains with me is that it was such a fantastic world that they create for themselves. Let's all keep hoping that someday it will be on VHS. I know that when I read Lord of the Flies I was thoroughly upset because I had seen The Seventh Continent and KNEW that it wouldn't be like that - that children would work out all their problems and live together. There is some magic in the story - but that's perfect.
