Who's Afraid of the Wolf?

This clever, inventive Czech film by writer-director Maria Prochazkova centers on a six-year-old girl (Dorota Dedkova) who’s transfixed by the Little Red Riding Hood story, which her mother dutifully recounts every night before bedtime. Prochazkova integrates the tale’s themes of identity confusion and betrayal into her own narrative, which deals with the young heroine's doubt over who her real mother is and a potential love triangle implicating both her parents. An accomplished animator before she ventured into live-action films, Prochazkova uses whimsical drawings to augment the narrative’s sense of childlike wonder. This is a first-rate example of a film children and adults can enjoy together. In Czech with subtitles. 90 min.
