Directed by Wlaydslaw Starewicz
No cast
Country: France
What it is: Animated fantasy

A prince and princess in love seek a land of happiness, but a wicked Mandarin and a dragon stand in their way.

My copy of this short has all the title cards in French, but IMDB had a plot description that helped me through it. However, it appears there is a framing story that doesn’t seem to be a part of my copy of it. However, that didn’t really damage the viewing experience; the visual quality of the short is so sumptuous and the animation so enticing that this short is a joy to watch. Starewicz was a true master of animation, and this is one of his masterpieces.
