Great singing but other than that...
21 October 2013 | by ZofoSee all my reviews

Great singing but other than that... The film as a whole, in my opinion, is ruined by sloppy and unimaginative use of computer animation in some of the shorts and especially in the narrator sequences. Perhaps in 1993 it was an interesting experiment in CGI, but today we are interested in the end result, which, alas, is far from being impressive. Some of the fragments made in more traditional animation techniques are not bad, but "not bad" is hardly enough, and very few of the shorts pretend to be more than that. Number 11 (Lakmé), directed by Pascal Roulin and done in clay animation, is one of the more interesting pieces.
