CARICE VAN HOUTEN lends her voice to the main character Alice in the first feature film of Jan Svankmajer. This film version of Lewis Carroll's world famous novel Alice in Wonderland is a sinister combination of animated puppets and live action. Alice (Kristýna Kohoutová) finds herself in a wonderful world when she follows a talking rabbit into his den. In Wonderland things are a bit different and strange creatures and strange figures pass by Alice. Wonderland is a world between dream and nightmare from which Alice hopes to wake up. In the hands of Svankmajer, Wonderland is becoming more wonderful than ever before. And with its macabre undertone, there is no longer a pure children's story ...
