a great film
16 October 2007 | by gloria-mundiSee all my reviews

The storyline of the film picks up where the fairytale leaves off. The mother of the wolf slain in the classic story (her favourite offspring) in an attempt to get revenge on the Little Red, hires a professional wolf to kill her and, along the way, to set her other fat and silly un-wolf-like son on the right path. And so the "team" sets off on their perilous journey and, in an ironic twist, it is the wolves that the viewer comes to sympathise with as the film progresses. Having grown up with this film (and every kid that has grown up in Russia has), I guess it is difficult for me to judge it completely objectively. Suffice it to say that, in my opinion, this is a very thoughtful and wonderful film that has some brilliant actors and that I would recommend anyone to see. There are no special effects, no amazing imagery, yet for all that, the film is full of kindness, irony and humour and respect for universal values such as bravery, honesty and, yet again, kindness. The dialogue is witty and a lot of it has since become catchphrases in Russia. P.S. In response to the previous comment, Little Red is called "Red Hat" in the Russian version of Pierrot's fairy tale, hence the bonnet rather than a hood.
