Fine Film Of Brothers Grimm Folk Tale
2 April 2001 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

THE FISHERMAN AND HIS WIFE who are given magical wishes from an enchanted flounder learn a valuable lesson about pride & greed.

This wonderful old tale from the Brothers Grimm is given a spirited interpretation by the folks at Rabbit Ears. Their faithful retellings of many classic stories has been a real gift to lovers of children's literature.

Jodie Foster's narration, the music by Van Dyke Parks, and Diana Bryan's humorous silhouette drawings all add to the success of this little film.
