Celebration in the Botanical Garden

  • Slovakia
Audio Tracks 

This colourful "fairy"-tale is about the need of miracles in life and of letting the charms of nature, where every single particle is in constant motion, take over as if in an impressionist painting. It is a mosaic built of the stories of Mária and Pierre. Mária, a tavern-keeper tries again and again to lead Pišta, the father of her eight daughters, to the wedding altar. Pierre by his arrival disturbs the peace of the wine-growing village of Bábindol but at the same time he shows its inhabitants how to really enjoy life.
