This film is part of the Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass series.


Alice enters the world behind the looking-glass. Part 1/4. Based on Lewis Carroll's novel (1871).

After his successful adaptation of the first book by Lewis Carroll in 1981, director Yefrem Pruzhanskiy also adapted its sequel the following year.

This was actually the first of the Alice books to become very popular, and caused a subsequent rise in popularity of the first book. The original text can be read here. It was translated to Russian 6 times (in 1924, 1967, 1969/1977, 1980, 1992 and 2018). The one that was used for this film seems to be the 1967 translation by N.M. Demurova, with poems translated by Samuil Marshak - it can be read here. Notably, all the "Red" chess pieces from the original book became the more traditional chess colour, "Black".

1984 - London International Film Festival - "Best Film Adaptation of Lewis Carroll by a Foreign Director" (for Pruzhanskiy's adaptations of the two Alice books)
