F is for Fehérlófia
Fehérlófia (Son of the White Mare, 1981) is one of the most famous Hungarian animated movies of all times. It was one of the films named among the 50 winners of the Olympiad of Animation I mentioned in the introduction. It is based on a similarly popular folktale, our version of ATU 301, the Three Kidnapped Princesses.
Note: Although it's based on a folktale, THIS IS NOT A KIDS' MOVIE. Here be boobs and symbolic innuendos, yo. Beware.
By the way, I'm not the one that named this movie psychedelic, it was the Huffington Post.
It is a movie definitely worth watching all the way through. It is definitely a trip (even stone cold sober), but it is a trip worth taking.
You can find it on YouTube here. There is not a whole lot of talking in it. You can find the tale in this book.
