As in all her work, Reiniger employed her distinctive and elegant silhouette technique to great effect and the film was highly acclaimed when it was first shown. The story consists of a number of episodes from the Arabian Nights and is woven around the efforts of Prince Achmed to rescue the beautiful Peri Banu from the clutches of the wicked African Sorcerer, which he does with the help of Aladdin and the Ogress of the Mountains. Though the film retains the original silent titles by Edmund Dulac, this new version has been colourtinted according to Reiniger's original instructions and has a specially composed musical score by Freddie Phillips. Though the film is credited to Reiniger's husband, Carl Koch, it is her design and animation that give it its special quality. Also involved in its production were Walter Ruttmann and Berthold Bartosch01ocn754889401visu2008Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed"Il était une fois dans la vallée du calife un jeune prince, Ahmed qui s'envole sur un cheval volant et atterit dans le pays lointain de Wak-Wak.
