Storyline

Strange Russian fairy tale dealing with a boy and a girl who go through the strangest situations to be with one another. The boy is transformed by a Mushroom Pixie into a bear, and almost baked by an evil witch who controls trees. The girl is given the Cinderella treatment by her mother and her sister who is jealous of her long braided hair. Jack Frost himself doesn't appear until late in the movie. Written by Jonah Falcon <jonahnynla@mindspring.com>

A GENUINELY Wild and Unpredictable Children's Film
22 June 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Forget the precious and technologically sledge-hammered atmosphere of Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Forget the vibe that is only as wacky as flat-footed focus groups of suburban oafs who grew up on Edward Scissorhands will allow. This film, Jack Frost, is wild and raw and original in a way that is certain to sail straight over the heads of over-preening SFX fans. This films technique, and any message or moral it bears, are bound to be lost on a generation that cannot tell a good-looking film from a good one.

It might be that having lived through the last 20 years of American cinema will ruin this film for you. You may see the simplicity as technical shortfall and the humor as neither ironic, rude nor smart ass enough. --Which is a pity. This is actually an offbeat little film from before every film was banked at the GNP of a small-to-mid-sized nation, and had to be so sure fire trashy/exciting that it was absolutely guaranteed to make back 20 times that.

And when I read seething criticism of Morozko, I see burnt out adolescents vainly denouncing a simple, guileless little flick out of pitiable reflexes born of involuntary submersion in a culture of video game violence, runaway production values, shock jock sensibility contamination and cable TV soft core porn.

Ten Stars. Work with it, Slappy.
