Silhouette Version of the Tale
3 January 2011 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Jack and the Beanstalk (1955)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Lotte Reiniger silhouette version of the classic tale will probably bore kids who grew up on Pixar but adults might find it's unique look to be worth a look. The story is the same familiar one we all know as Jack trades his cow for some magic beans and climbs up the beanstalk to take on the giant. From what I've read it appears that Reiniger and her form of animation has pretty much been forgotten by most today but I enjoyed what I saw here enough to check out more of her work. The film runs just under 12-minutes and features a color backdrop to the cut out silhouette images. I thought the visuals in the film were extremely nice and I especially loved the colors that Reiniger used for the background. The climb up and down the beanstalk were a lot of fun as the visuals really brought everything to life. Another good thing is the narration by Deryck Guyler.
