Superb fairy tale - perfection

This fairy tale tells the most beautiful story about friendship and how dear it is, and does so with charm, wit, magic and everything you could wish for. Czech fairy tales are always excellent, and this has become one of my favourites. There's everything to be had here: comedy, best friends, romance, a kingdom, the (very bureaucratic) underworld, the overworld, and great life lessons of course. Czech fairy tales have perfected the art of seamlessly integrating special effects so that you never think of special effects and think how magical it is instead. An example here is the magical way a huge palace gets built by an army of underworld denizens overnight. The English subtitles are always excellent. I'm very grateful to the staff, the crew, subtitlers, production companies, CzechMovie and the entire Czech Republic for continuing to make these superlative films for all ages and make them available to the world to watch. It's more than an art. I just can't think of the word for it.


Best Friend / Nejlepsi pritel DVD
Great Fairy Tale of Devil Matěj is an enchanting story about the pursuit of happiness, love, and especially the power of friendship that can overcome the schemes of hell. The tale revolves around Devil Matěj (M. Adamczyk), who is punished to fulfill the wishes of a poor young man, Ondra (Z. Piškula), until Ondra finds complete happiness. The story deepens when Ondra falls in love with Rézinka, a countess (K. Svarinská), and Matěj himself becomes enamored with the cook, Marjánka (H. Vagnerová). Adding to the complexity, a devious Baron (O. Sokol) is introduced, leading to a series of challenging and humorous events. The narrative weaves through Ondra's ambitious promise to build a castle overnight and his enlightening journey to find where true happiness lies, including a daring venture into hell itself, meeting Lucifer (F. Němec) and his aide Befelem (J. Langmajer).
