Storyline

Jack and his mother are the picture of poverty. They're starving and can't afford to eat or tend to the farm. Even the family goldfish is literally nothing but bones. Jack decides to sell the cow at the market. He is about to sell it to a butcher, but a stranger convinces him to buy magic beans instead. Jack's feels that he was cheated and punishes him for being so gullible. She throws the beans out the window where they are watered overnight by rain. In the morning, a tall vine has grown into the clouds. Jack climbs the beanstalk and encounters a giant and his giantess wife, who means to eat Jack. Jack narrowly escapes the wrath of the couple and takes with him the giant's treasures: a magical harp and a hen that lays eggs filled with coins. Written by Melissa

seductive
25 December 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A short version of a classic English fairy tale. Charming animation, nice ideas - the cow and spider-, precise resume, beautiful use of humor and music, little strange characters. But more than seductive for small details, for clear story and for precise reduction at basic traits of original story. so, a beautiful animation.
