Bizarre and enjoyable condensed version
23 July 2002 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

One of Shakespeare's coolest plays, adapted in a very peculiar format. A Russian company, in conjunction with the Royal Shakespeare Company of Britain created this off-beat little version of the classic play. Combining drawn animation and puppet animation, the effect is weird but ultimately enjoyable. The monstrous Caliban has never looked more freaky and the spirit Ariel is a oddball, bird-like creature. Okay, they chop a Shakespeare down to half an hour, so there are a lot of sacrifices made, but all in all, the weird animation, well-done voices and nice music are absolutely worth a watch.
