Description by Image Entertainment:
An allegorical film based on the music of Czech composer Leos Janacek. "The Dandelion Crown" shows how an insignificant member of society struggles to maintain her individuality in a world where the voice of the individual must be silenced. But it does offer the final consolation that the leader of the Inquisition cannot escape his own just punishment. The film is set against the background of one of Janacek's most important works, "Glagolitic Mass," a masterpiece of the choral repertoire which he wrote between 1926 and 1927. The "Glagolitic Mass" is performed by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Simon Rattle, and features soloists Felicity Palmer and Ameral Gunson.
