    The American re-edit isn't terrible, but the restored original version (available in the US via Criterion) is really good. Especially for adults, though probably not for the intended young audience who might not be prepared to read a movie for 88 minutes. I get why they chose to reshape it for the US market, but as an adult, it's a bit shameful to Zeman's artistry.

    The only criticism I can level is the lack of a young adventuress. Granted, when/where it was made, that probably wasn't a desire, but women behind the Iron Curtain weren't as discouraged from entering the natural sciences as their western counterparts. Who knows, if I had adapted this for the US market, given the complete new dialogue and names for the voice over, I might have tried to make the youngest a huntress.

    Still, really a great movie!

    I'm a lover of old black and white Hollywood classics, mostly from around 1930-1962. Also a big lover of Japanese film, French film and non-Disney animated film.
