Not particularly good.
29 October 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Wladyslaw Starewicz was an early stop-motion pioneer. Many of his early films are simply amazing at the quality, style and fun. And, it's surprising how good they were considering how new the film industry was. Considering that "Winter Carousel" is one of the last films he made, you'd likely assume it's the culmination of all the wonderful things he'd learned and it would be among his best. Well, that is not the case at all. Unlike his great films, "Winter Carousel" has little in the way of story and therefore has little staying power as a film. It consists of three animals (and later a couple more) cavorting about in the snow and skating on the ice. One is clearly a rabbit--the other two are not so clear, as the dolls were not particularly high quality. Later, it becomes Spring and more of the same occurs. All in all, a pretty dull little film. I will point out that unlike his early films, this one is in color--but that isn't enough to save it.
