Lotte Reiniger's unique animated version of Jack and the Beanstalk should still provide some entertainment for children
28 January 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Lotte Reiniger animated short on YouTube. As usual, Ms. Reiniger employs her literal cardboard silhouette characters in telling her stories. Only this time, the background is in color which was probably a demand from her production company bosses since she herself preferred black and white. Anyway, she provides entertaining movements that move the familiar tale of Jack and the Beanstalk along smoothly. The YouTube version I saw, however, had to be cut to fit the 10 minute limit most uploaders get on the site. Since I knew the story so well, that was little concern to me. I also like the narrator chosen for the English-language version that was presented on YouTube. So on that note, this version of Jack and the Beanstalk is highly recommended especially if you have children.
