A Midsummer Night's Dream

  1. Overview
  2. Description

Ji?í Trnka's puppets invite you to their world of dreams with this film mixing comedy and poetry.

Impossible lovers, an elven king and a fairy queen in disagreement, a mischievous sprite and a troupe of actors preparing for a princely wedding will meet up in this fantastic forest, where for one bewitching night, dream and illusion merge with reality.

A Midsummer Night's Dream is a delightful comedy that carries us away from reality to explore the mysterious forces of the subconscious by mixing the sensitivities of love.
