Even with the knowledge that the figures are made from simple pieces of cards and tricks of light, there is a magical splendour to her animations.

More than eighty years later...it still looks like nothing you've ever seen.

The Adventures of Prince Achmed deserves to be a landmark. And it would be if it were better known.

It impresses for its exquisite craftmanship, balletic movement, expressive romanticism and moments of potent sensuousness and poetry.

A rapturous animated kaleidoscope with a more abstracted visage of the 1001 Arabians Nights tale than you could dream.

That The Adventures of Prince Achmed still survives is a work of wonder equivalent to any rare treasure which Aladdin could rub out of his lamp.

The images, most of them gorgeously detailed silhouettes, are dazzling.

It may not be exactly new to perceive silhouette figures on the screen, but it is quite another matter as they are offered here.

Beautiful as it all is, considerable dedication is required to sit through an hour of monotone, flat silhouette animation. It's rewarding -- but the reward is hard earned.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

German filmmaker Lotte Reiniger's ground-breaking, silent, animated fantasy feature used cut-out paper silhouettes to tell a tale that combines pieces of several stories from The Arabian Nights: Tales from a Thousand and One Nights.
