| A stunning and unique masterpiece of animation
You will never see anything like this, anywhere. Based on the tales the ancient horse-lords told their children before they went off to wage bloody war across the steppes with one another, this dreamlike and beautifully-crafted amalgamation of old legends and modern allegory is simple enough for children to follow its basic narrative (provided they can either speak Hungarian or read subtitles), and an absolute treasure of a find for any adults interested in animation, art, mythology, surrealism, etc. Though it favors simple solid colors, the animator's style is unique and clearly the labor of love - the hand of a master is evident. There aren't many Hungarian animated films, but the ones that I've seen were all quite good - with this one clearly being the best.
