  • 1960英國影藝學院電影獎 最佳動畫片獎提名

This avant-garde film, which used diverse techniques, turned out to be an important step in both directors’ careers, who from then on worked independently. A confirmation of this unconventional movie’s success was the Grand Prix won in the International Experimental Film Competition, organized during the Brussels World’s Fair in 1958.

    Walerian Borowczyk is one of the most controversial names in the history of cinema. Inspiring the likes of novelist Angela Carter, filmmakers Terry Gilliam, the Quays brothers, and Jan Švankmajer, Borowczyk’s wild imagination and dark humor has been described as “when Kafka meets Bruñel.” Some call him a genius who crossed from painting, animation, to live-action; some call him a prurient, exploitative, obscene pornographer, like all those that sprung up with the 1970s relaxation of censorship.
