  • Adam Whybray's rating of the film Faust's House

    Personally I consider this Seko's best. It is essentially a solid piece of edutainment. There's a lovely, slightly shabby museum in Prague called 'Museum of Prague Ghosts and Legends' and I can very much imagine this film playing on a television set in a corner there, probably off of a vhs. Suitable for children over 8 but they may well find it too slow. I'm rather fond of it though!
