Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a animated adaptation of the famous novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, elaborate in many film versions. This one is dedicated to children or teenage audience. It has an interesting framework: the scary story about Dr. Jekyll is narrated by a nanny to two young boys - before sleeping. The retro stylization is nice and thrilling plot is interpreted in an expressive way (probably this movie is not suitable for the youngest ones). The humor is attendant only in conception of Mr. Hyde who act more as malicious heavy than a impersonate evil. The voices are becomingly picked (especially Max Meldrum and David Nettheim). It is not the best alteration of Stevenson's work but it is nice and teenagers should like it.
