The Ninth Heart
CZ, 1978, 35mm, VOST FR & ANG / FR & ENG OND, 76'
'A fanciful rediscovery' is one way of putting it. A key fairytale in the oeuvre of The Dark Baron. Herz riffs on the concept of 'seeing anew with childlike wonder' in a concoction that features a pouty-lipped princess, a brave vagrant, a maleficent evildoer and nine children's hearts!
In the presence of director Juraj Herz
