Seven seemingly unconnected fairy tales - glued together only by folklore, mood, color and light - make up this Czech collection of visual poetry. The original piece of literature, written by Karel Jaromír Erben in 1853, contained twelve tales.

Wild Flowers (Kytice), Directed by F. A. Brabec, 2000, 81 min, In Czech with English subtitles.

Seven stories of desire, obsession and selfishness: "Wild Flowers" visits a mother who knows no end to her love for orphans. In "The Waterman", a woman has a child with the man who lives under the lake. In "Wedding Dress", a grief-stricken widow wishes her husband back from the dead. The parents in "The Noonday Witch" are granted their wish that their children stop crying. A mischievous girl is given queer retribution in "The Golden Spinning Wheel". "The Daughters Curse" comes between a girl and her mother. And finally, in "Christmas Day", an old woman finds the solace to face death.
