One of the worst films ever
11 May 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I hardly know where to begin with this thoroughly terrible film. Perhaps the best way to start is to say that I recently saw Trolls 2, which - although replete with shocking dialogue, acting and special effects - was an altogether more enjoyable experience.

Le Petit Poucet is an adaptation of a well-known fairy story. So it's clear that one should suspend one's disbelief whilst watching it. However, it doesn't seem to know quite whether it's depicting total fantasy or reality. For example, the supposedly 'starving' family is composed of boys in rude health; their foraging skills consist of pawing through a mixture of grass and mud (why not use tools to dig? If foraging, why not look for nuts and berries rather than using hands to scrape soil?); only one of the many 'dead' bodies in the film makes a convincing attempt to play dead (the others are all breathing and seem to make little effort to hide it).

The special effects are very crude - particularly the scene inside the giant's stomach - and some of the scenes are simply baffling. The final one with Poucet eating an apple, crying and throwing chunks of meat to the rest of his family who are scrabbling on the floor on their hands and knees is a great example.

I enjoyed Trolls 2 because I knew it was going to be terrible, and comically so. I really didn't like Poucet because it is terrible but there is little comedy in it - just poor acting and weird scenes. The disappointment and bafflement of the audience where I saw the film was palpable.

Please don't watch this film. Learn from the mistake of me and the two poor friends I dragged along with me.
