In a suggestive sequence of scenes the glove - actors manage to paraphrase seven film genres in fifteen minutes, starting with a Chaplin-like chase and finishing in a temporary sci-fi horror. The film with its state-of-the-art form and fantasy is a representative of the post-Trnka period of the Czech puppet pictures and has been awarded a number of world prizes.
