CHARMING FAIRY TALE
8 August 1999 | by J. SteedSee all my reviews

Charming and successful adaptation of the Wilhelm Busch characters Max and Moritz. Conceived by composer/director Norbert Schultze as a Singspiel in which every character (except the dog) moves and walks unrealistically as if they were choreographed. The costumes are silly and appropriate for every character. Simple but nice set design and the music enhance the fairy tale atmosphere. And last but not least there is fine animation incorporated with the live action. Kids up to 6 or 7 should still have a ball with this one.
