Karel Zeman's "Baron Munchausen" Is Indeed "Fabulous"!

This is another of the 'archival' prints of fantasy film-maker extraordinaire Karel Zeman's works released by the Karel Zeman Museum in his Czech homeland.

Great Movie, Great Seller

This is a classic movie that arrived as ordered. Not a DVD-R, not an inferior knockoff, the real deal bought from a solid retailer.

An excellent foreign fantasy

An excellent foreign fantasy, a true classic...highly recommend .

Baron Prasil is a one of my all time favorite fantasy films

"Baron Prasil" is a one of my all time favorite fantasy films. This has to be one of the most charming, imaginative, and dreamlike films ever made. The characters in this film are quite romantic (i.e. in an old fashioned chivalrous way), witty, and whimsical. The sets are unique in style, and the creatures that roam the around the Baron's surreal world, are wonderfully rendered.

Whenever I watch this film, I feel completely swept away by its charming beauty, its light- hearted wit, and by the warm uplifting feeling of viewing director Karel Zeman's brilliant artistic vision completely realized.


The Fabulous Baron Munchausen / Baron prasil
Modern astronaut Toník lands on the Moon, where he encounters a peculiar society that includes Cyrano de Bergerac, the heroes from Verne's From the Earth to the Moon, and, most notably, the boastful Baron Munchausen. They warmly welcome Toník with a glass of wine and wish for him to experience the magic of life on Earth. Baron Munchausen and Toník then journey to Turkey, where they rescue the beautiful Princess Bianca from the clutches of a treacherous sultan. The boastful baron tries to win her over by launching himself into wild adventures, finding himself inside a giant whale, flying on the talons of a massive bird, swimming underwater on a seahorse, and moving into the chaos of war on a cannonball. However, during these fantastical escapades, the brave dreamer Toník captures Bianca's heart, and together they journey back to where the story began—the pale Moon, a place that belongs not only to poets and dreamers but, above all, to lovers.
