The most faithful adaptation of Gaston Leroux's novel... but a terrible animation
3 December 2006 | by (Kirkkonummi, Finland) – See all my reviews

This could well be by far the most faithful adaptation of Gaston Leroux's Gothic romance "The Phantom of the Opera". Both Christine's and Raoul's characters are presented just as they were in the novel. Erik, the Phantom, appears only as a shadow and two shinning eyes in the beginning and then as the corpse like genius as in the novel. With exception of the latest movie version of ALW's musical this is the only film adaptations that keeps the original ending in which Erik earns his redemption by allowing Christine to leave and marry Raoul. This ending didn't even appear in Lon Chaney's version! And the Persian Daroga is also in here, though his past with Erik is somewhat different, and the torture chamber!

Yet, unfortunately the animation is poor and simply terrible. Same scenes is used over and over again and the characters movements are slow. Also the recorded voice doesn't move along the mouths movements.

Sad that when Leroux's story finally appears as it has been waited for, even using many of the lines directly from the book, it turns out to be so technically poor that you wish to close your eyes. Yet, it can be watch once, if for nothing else than the story. It is only 50 minutes long.
