A juvenile special effects’ fable from former animator Vukotic, whose animated short Ersatz was an Oscar-winner in 1958. The simple but eventful plot sees a young author conjuring his fictional alien characters to life, and this trio playing havoc with the boy and his fellow townsfolk as they exercise their special extra-terrestrial powers, before restoring normality by turning back time. The effects’ work, done in Czechoslovakia, is integrated well into the action, which has the air of a fairy-tale despite its Science Fiction aspects.
