Not only a historical landmark, but a beautifully made and artistic film. It uses animated silhouette shadow puppets to tell a story adapted form elements of The Arabian Nights.

The puppets are beautifully made and detailes, with what must be thousands of moving parts. It's hard to imagine the amount of detail until you actually see it on the screen. As for the story, to tell the truth it was intersting enough at the start, but eventually it began to drag on.

Still, it was an amazing technical achievement for its time, and is still amazing and exciting to look at.
