LA PEAU DE CHAGRIN is a novel written by honore de balzac in 1831. it is about a man, raphael, who finds a powerful talisman that grants him any wish but shrinks with each use. the user dies when it shrinks to zero. be careful what you wish – it could kill you.
ZAGREB FILM started in the early fifties. in a later post I will go more into details of the studios history and its productions.
here, first, are some images of the studio’s LA PEAU DE CHAGRIN from 1960. script dragutin vunak and tomislav butorac, directed and designed by VLADIMIR KRISTL , animated by zlatko grgic, backgrounds by zvonimir loncaric.
raphael is in black, pauline in lily white, the devil in red. the backgrounds are very stylish, a masterpiece from the jugoslawian studio.
