Divertimento Menuetto in C Major No. 7 KV 205

Film impression inspired by the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart made in the classic animation technique. A chessboard square turns into a salon floor. The pawns and pieces come to life in the shape of courtiers and start game in the rhythm of a minuet. However, it turns out that a game of chess has been replaced with a court intrigue – a cunningly planted letter leads to a duel, which is stopped by the Queen.
