Panna a netvor
After seeing Morgiana I wanted more Juraj Herz films in a similar style (a few of his newer films look very different), there arenít many of his films on English dvd but I found that there was a dvd with no English title on the box but did have English subtitles in the disc: Panna A Netvor (in this discís subtitles for the film this is translated as ďVirgin And The BeastĒ, not ďBeautyĒ).

Although the animated series looked like it was done on a tiny budget and tight deadline (lots of shortcuts taken), considering that, it did an admirable job of telling the story (I think the recent animated films were too much like a summary and didn't get the power of the… Read more
