| Absolutely amazing!
I bought this precious little gem from dvdbest.sk on a hunch without knowing anything about this movie. And, boy, am I glad I did. In the two weeks I have had it in my possession I have watched it at least ten times and I expect to watch it many more times in the years to come.

This movie is absolutely amazing. Its cinematography boggles the mind. Filmed long before the advent of computer special effects, it shows us tiny elves in the presence of full-size human children seamlessly working together.

It has wonderful music that I just cannot get out of my mind. It has children, some of them well under 10, acting along experienced professional adult actors as if they were old pros, a great tribute to the art and craft, and probably psychology, of director Oldrich Lipsky.

The story is both funny and endearing, both dark and innocent, even romantic. A great movie for the whole family, children and adults alike.
