Colorful & Pleasant, Though Somewhat Bland
17 August 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

The last of Wladyslaw Starewicz's animated features, "Winter Carousel" is colorful and pleasant, if often somewhat bland. It features his carefully detailed puppet animation, with the addition of lots of color, and it reprises one or two of his familiar animals along with some new ones.

There isn't really much of a story to this one. It starts with some animals playing in the snow and ice, and proceeds in a generally similar vein. It is agreeable to watch the creatures frolicking around, though after a while it gets to be pretty much more of the same. There is just enough to see to make it worth watching all the way through, and so it's worth seeing even though it does not have the rich detail of Starewicz's classics.
