  1. Sour Girl's rating of the film Joachim's Dictionary

    Ugh, one star for a such a pretentious shit film is too much.

  2. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film Joachim's Dictionary

    Humorous and does not seem outmoded. I liked boy's and man's being defined in the same way.

  3. findfilm's rating of the film Joachim's Dictionary

    This short and meaningful film is very humorous and the viewer is welcome to take each a-z scene at face value or ponder a deeper meaning. In each separate vignette the main character (line drawing) demonstrates the meaning of a word for the relevant letter. Perfectly matched music and sound effects enhance the viewing experience. Though now 50 years old the art on display feels contemporary. Quite delightful.

  4. fearraigh's rating of the film Joachim's Dictionary

    Jokey and whimsical but very amusing in parts ('garçon', 'homme' and 'force' in particular are very funny). One of a range of delightful early shorts from Borowczyk.

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Joachim's Dictionary

    une certaine originalité humoristique et bienvenue... www.cinefiches.com

  6. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film Joachim's Dictionary

    3,5/5 Cette simplicité et cet inattendu ravissent le panda neurasthénique.

  7. lou.'s rating of the film Joachim's Dictionary

    Aussi simple, que bien réalisé. J'ai déja exprimé mon obsession pour les encyclopédies et les dictionnaires? Voilà.

  8. captainfez's rating of the film Joachim's Dictionary

    The true cartoon universal is the missed-note xylophone gag.

  9. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Joachim's Dictionary

    A fine short film with ambigous humor. I like the simplicity of the concept and the surprises Borowczyk gains from making variations of his basic picture. The use of sound and (also simplistic) music is very good.

  10. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Joachim's Dictionary

    Struck me as a trifle droll by Borowczeyk's standards; but then again, one shouldn't go to Surrealist art to be amused, even though it is often (incidentally?) amusing. The eye, the suicide and the hanging nose game made me laugh.
