Storyline

It's night; a wide-eyed fearful child is in bed. When her granny enters the room, the child pretends to be asleep. Granny O'Grimm isn't fooled; she pokes the child with a walker and picks up the book "Sleeping Beauty." We see the story as she tells it, images jumping between fairies at a baby's christening and Granny's agitated narrating. The aged fairy, who wasn't invited to the feast, looks just like Granny, but with small wings. As the child's terror deepens, Granny reaches the end of her version of the story. Will the child get any sleep? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great animation, but lacking in plot
4 February 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This Oscar nominated animated short is about a grandmother who tells a bedtime story to her grandchild, which is a scary version of Sleeping Beauty.

"Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty" is technically great, with cute characters, nice 3D animation of the bedroom and also visually pleasing 2D animation of the fairyland. The contrast of the dark and eerie bedroom and the delightful fairyland is interesting, as the colour schemes do not fit in the mood of the subplots. However, the plot itself is rather flat. We only see the grandmother telling a scary story which makes the grandchild frightened. There is nothing else on offer. No ups or downs, no things to learn from. I am left to wonder what the point of the short is.
