Since the creation of Puppets, the Martinu's ability for joining didactical purpose and valuable artistic performance was very much obvious. The Puppets indeed create a special midpoint between instructive and concert compositions. Moreover, children's world was given a few more nice piano pieces that became popular for education - Film en miniature though belongs to more demanding pieces. Martinu (1890-1959) completed this work in Paris in 1925, the cycle relates, however, to native Policka (names of particular pieces contain topographic addresses connected with both Vysocina and also Paris). Film en miniature consists of six compositions: opening Tango originating in rhythms of habanera dance, Scherzo, Berceuse, Valse, Chanson and Carillon.
