quietearth [Film Festival 09.08.10] Czech Republic movie trailer news animation fantasy

That's right, the London Film Festival lineup has just been announced which includes the likes of Black Swan, Neds, Never Let Me Go, Essential Killing, Submarine, and Let Me In, but it also includes the new film from Czech animation genius Jan Svankmajer which premiered at Venice. It's not new ground as it combines live action and stop motion, but as usual, it looks fantastic. The foreign title is "Prezít svuj zivot (teorie a praxe)".

Here's a description from the fest website:
Eugene (Václav Helsus) leads a double life - married to Milada, he also dreams of the beautiful Evgenia (Klára Issová). Seeking to perpetuate his dream life, he goes to see a psychoanalyst, who attempts to provide an ongoing interpretation of his experiences. On the wall are portraits of Freud and Jung, which become animated, alternately applauding, disapproving or fighting over her interpretations.
