Storyline

The main character is the girl Alice, who sees the second in everything - the magic side. After a previous trip to Wonderland, where she met many interesting and unusual personalities and experienced exciting adventures, the girl dreams of a new miracle. However, she finds it not far away in the garden, but right at home - behind the mirror. Here everything is as it is in our world, only quite the opposite. If you want to go forward, you need to go back, if you see flowers, then be sure that they can talk and move. Here Alice finds new adventures for herself: this time she has become a white pawn, which, in order to complete the game, needs to complete a number of instructions and take the place of the White Queen.

Fine adaptation of the great book: hugely superb to Disney's
25 December 2002 | by sergey_smirnowSee all my reviews

Believe me, this cartoon is great. Unlike that sugar-coated and over-simplificated Disney version, it retains genuine sense of wonder and delicious weirdness so prominent in the book. I remember watching Disney's Alice in still tender age of 11, on big screen no less, and it completely failed to impress me compared to Russian cartoon that popped up occasionally on TV.

Carroll's work is not for children only, nor is it easy to adapt onscreen; while Disney carefully removed all the more serious issues, Russian version has them all, including several rather grim existential/death jokes. Again, Disney's Alice is just another Snow-White, while Alisa is more like Carroll and Tennison perceived her: cute, curious, caring, innocent and strong.

Cut-out animation is top of the line, in fact, it eerily resembles some modern high-budget anime; add to this superb voice work and fine electronic soundtrack from the beginning of 80's - and you have a great work of art.

I surely hope "Alisa" finds its way to "Masters of Russian Animation" series. This masterpiece surely deserves much wider recognition.
