Burton's Experiment
27 July 2000 | by (Tempio Pausania, ITALIA) – See all my reviews

A good experiment for Tim Burton. I think was an interessant and sweet version of the novel and originally was andepisode for Faerie Tale Theatre. But it's very nice, the gus star Hanse and Gretal are kung fu boys and the witch is a man with a black suit. Very nice, and very funny!!!!
