Czech surrealist filmmaker Jan Svankmajer, who gained a reputation for his short subjects, makes his feature-film debut with Neco z Alenky, a grotesque look into the darkest, wildest recesses of a child's mind. A surreal adaptation of Lewis Carroll's children's classic Alice in Wonderland, the film stars Kristyna Kohoutová as Alice, the only human character in the film. The other roles, which are voiced by Alice, are filled by an odd menagerie of animated clay, puppets, and meat. After falling asleep beside a stream, Alice follows a stuffed rabbit into a magical world where she encounters several grotesque-looking characters, including a caterpillar and The Mad Hatter. Also released under the title Alice, Neco Z Alenky was nominated for the International Fantasy Film Award at the 1989 Fantasporto Film Festival. ~ Matthew Tobey, All Movie Guide

This is a very standard Czech film. The stop animation and the bizarreness of Alice in Wonderland makes it fun to watch. Much better than any other depiction of the book.

The first twenty minutes of this film was great. But then the rest of it was exactly the same. No visual, thematic, emotional, or stylistic variety. I don't know. It's a classic and all. It's pretty interesting until its horribly boring. Watch it if you want.

This one is no harder to follow nor more surreal than any previous version of the story, including the book by Lewis Carroll.
