Magnificent
7 July 2002 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

The best version of "The Red Shoes" I'd ever seen. Set in a Hispanic neighborhood, it retells the classic with Hispanic beat. The real strength, though, is the sense of loss and memory - it infuses the entire show with a sense of sadness and wistfulness, but ends with acceptance and the message that losing someone you love should make you appreciate those you love around you that much more.

Part of HBO's series of animated tales that are prime examples of nontraditional casting - if you see it listed in your TV guide or see it on the rental shelf, SEE IT IMMEDIATELY, regardless of race. This one is a sincere tearjerker.
