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>

Nice little short even though it is no masterpiece
14 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Reading the nominations for the Best Animated Shorts this year, I decided to watch this nominee. On discovering it was Irish (I am of Irish ancestry and take pride in it), I was further enticed. The overall result is mixed yet generally positive.

"Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty" features an unfortunate grandchild forced to listen to a warped rendition of the classic fairy-tale by his deranged grandmother. Ultimately, there is not much structure to the piece, but it is quite funny for what it is.

The two parts are contrasted in terms of their medium; the clips of the fairy-tale are told in bold Flash-style animation, whereas the frame is showcased in Pixar-style computer animation. The 2D animation is more successful than the 3D animation; the former is simple and works well on a modest budget, whereas the 3D animation suffers a bit and does seem a bit gummy. Needless to say, this is a nice little short, even if it seems unlikely to snatch the Oscar that it's been nominated for.
