  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Emperor's Nightingale

    L'empereur de Chine est charmé par le chant d'un rossignol qu'une petite fille vient de lui amener. Mais lorsqu'on lui offre un volatile mécanique, qui roucoule à volonté, il délaisse l'oiseau ..... Mignon tout plein ! www.cinefiches.com

  2. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Emperor's Nightingale

    3.5 stars. Has a quiet feverish grace which is all its own and the leading child genuinely looks quite unwell! The not-quite-aliveness of the objects is foregrounded in the pretty but morbid world of artifice. Not my favourite Trnka, but very assured.

  3. Log Lady's rating of the film The Emperor's Nightingale

    Beautiful, but as much as I love Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales, in this case the story leaves little room for creativity. Still, this type of animation will always my heart. Amazing to look at, no matter what the story itself is like.
