Everything has its use. And a life of its own, too. A wardrobe wanders through the forest, harbouring a nursery where toy dolls and household articles compete in an over-the-top, destructive show accompanied by Lewis Carroll’s poem “Jabberwocky”. Jan Švankmajer’s production ranks among the classics of surreal object animation.
