Toys in the Attic

Na Půdě Aneb Kdo Má Dneska Narozeniny?
Czech Republic, France, Japan | 2009/12 | Jirí Barta, Vivian Schilling

Toys in the Attic

Next to Jan Švankmajer, Jirí Barta is the foremost stop-motion animator working in the Czech Republic today. And that’s saying a lot, because the Czechs have excelled at grown-up puppet films and grotesque object animation for decades. Having shown a number of Barta’s movies over the years, the Cinematheque returns to the Capitol Theatre tonight to present his first feature film in two decades—a twisted Toy Story that’s perfect for the sick-of-Christmas season. Toys in the Attic (which may be too dark, sinister, and creepy for young children) tells of a group of abandoned, old-fashioned, slightly ratty toys who spring into action when one of their own, a dainty blonde doll named Buttercup, is kidnaped by the autocratic ruler of the evil kingdom across the room. We will show the English-language version of the movie, which has voices by Forest Whitaker, Joan Cusack, Cary Elwes, et al. “Manna for anyone who likes animated fantasias without wisecracks, commercials, and overwrought warbling about selfactualization, meaning that it's suitable for those who will grow up either to be the next Tim Burton or simply to enjoy his movies.” –The NY Times.
