Good early fairy-tale.
12 January 2019 | by gnok2002See all my reviews

I insert reviews for films I've seen that lack one, here is a chance to recomend one such film.... Based on a Grimm's fairy tale this is a stop-motion puppet animation tale of a girl who goes on a quest, to save her seven brothers, that were transformed into ravens shortly after her birth, to complicate matters she has to remain mute. It is very well made and has a good sense of the magical reality of the fairy-tale world, of magic and princes, both the backgrounds and animation are realised to a high standard. Also worth noting is that though this is made when the Nazis were in total control of Germany, I at least spotted no unpleasant elements, it is indeed a charming film. Good 4/7.
