Karel Capek visited the Netherlands at the end of June 1931. The book still offers an interesting perspective on how today's Netherlands has retained many of the characteristics that Capek aptly described. The film attempts to capture the atmosphere of film language in the country - through words, drawings (animation) and music. Pictures from Holland are the first part of the cycle, wandering in the footsteps of Czech writers in Europe (Italy, England, Sweden, Norway and Spain).
