The Emperor's Nightingale ★★★

Listen I'll watch a stop-motion / puppet film any day of the week, above most else, so I was primed to enjoy a lot of this. FISH SCULPTURE, SINGING FROG, and BEADED CURTAIN were my favorite things.

Trnka's short film that preceded this - involving a barrel organ and the devil and a haunted house - was fucking amazing, though.
