Movie Info

The world of the attic is divided into the land of happy toys in the West and the Land of Evil in the East. The despotic Head of State rules over the Land of Evil with a band of sinister minions, insects and rotted vegetables. When the lovely Buttercup is kidnapped and held prisoner by The Head, it is up to her friends - a teddy bear, a mechanical mouse and marionette puppet to cross the international boundary and attempt their daring rescue.

The narrative ... is mere scaffolding for Barta's richly realized world, a kind of hand-hewn 3-D cinema that's testament to the limitlessness of imagination.

The movie is passionately retro, but Barta shows his methods can create a world every bit as engrossing as the latest CGI.

Top Critic

A strange, and not entirely successful, hybrid of a kiddie story and dark, mature themes.

There may be a metaphor afloat here - something about the folly of those who devour their own - in between some glorious imagery and what is finally a sweet little story.

It could itself be a dusty but treasured rediscovered artifact from another era.

Barta's shorts are available on DVD; you're better off getting a dose of the uncut goods.

Audience Reviews for Toys In The Attic (Na Pude)

½

When mother-figure doll Buttercup is kidnapped by an evil head (!), the other toys go on a surreal journey through the old home to rescue her in this Czech stop-motion animated feature. It seems lazy and obvious to describe this as 50% TOY STORY, 50% Jan Svankmajer, but that's exactly how the movie plays out. Hard to believe the head who spies anywhere in the house with his eyeball on a slithering stalk wouldn't give Czech children nightmares, but maybe they're tougher-minded than American kids.
