gracialouiseEmerges mandolin and rose triumphant from the splendour that was Karel Zeman's THE OUTRAGEOUS BARON MUNCHAUSEN (1961). On horseback. The night, a colour-tinted engraving of Gustave Doré. The night,a mythological collage. Outlandish enchantment indeed. "Luna till now belonged but to the poets, to the dreamers, to daring fantasists and adventurers in powdered wigs. To fantasists in frock coats, and to those in bizarre helmets from the pages of the newest novels. And of course to the lovers, to them Luna was always most dear!” (Preceded by 'Inspiration', Karel Zeman (1949))
