Pure enchantment!
17 May 2010 | by AnnieLolaSee all my reviews

This is one of Lotte Reiniger's very last animated silhouette films, and is certain to charm. It has a different flavor from her main body of work, which was of course in black and white; this is in bright 70's color, with plenty of 'sunshine' hues, for a sparkling fairytale effect, though this is a romance and not a fairy tale. The young lovers in this medieval tale are exquisitely rendered, and the colors mostly derive from layered tissue paper; the effect is quite delicate. As a Canadian production, it was issued in both French and English versions, though I've found the French elusive. One would expect the narration to include some of the language of the original French "chantfable". Very pretty music as well. See it if you can!
