This 30-minute animation called Dziwne dziwy, czyli… Baśń o Korsarzu Palemonie is probably one of the most confusing things you will ever see.
Directed by Krzysztof Dębowski, it is apparently based on a Polish Fable written by Jan Brzechwa...about a King who dies, but before he does so, he announces to his four daughters that the one who will overcome the Palemon the Pirate will get the crown. Palemon owns all the seas and his empire is enormous. Eventually one of King’s daughters, the ugliest one, conquers Palemon’s empire and she becomes the new Queen. But besides that, she also hooks up with Palemon and they get married. [Cartoon Brew]
Now, I didn’t really understand what was going on while watching it but that might be because I’m on pain medication (no, I’m not taking it for recreational purposes…this time), but that by no means minimized how fucking awesome and crazed this animated tale was.
Seriously, if you have 30 minutes (and if you are at work, you know you do) watch it.
