Story of the Bass Cello

Román s basou

Directed by Jiří Trnka
Czechoslovakia, 1949
Animation, Short, Comedy


A film based on A. P. Cechov’s story shows with a slight irony a poor musician who carries a noble girl, whose dress was stolen while taking a bath, in a double-bass case. Already we can see Trnka’s sense of lyrical humour in this film.
