Storyline

1920s Vienna. Nine-year-old Mary lives in a home filled with lovely things and loneliness. Bothered by bratty brother Max and neglected by well intentioned, but distracted, parents, she yearns for companionship and adventure. On Christmas Eve, Mary's beloved Uncle Albert arrives with the gift of a wooden nutcracker doll. Later that night, Mary's imagination brings the doll to life. Introducing himself as "NC," he takes her on a wondrous journey through a stunning dimension where toys assume human form and everything appears ten times larger. But danger lurks. An army of toothy rat creatures, led by the flamboyant Rat King and his devious mother, has unleashed a plot to overthrow humanity. When NC is captured and placed under a paralytic spell, Mary, Max and a spirited band of toy sidekicks must rescue him from the Rat King's clutches and thwart his wicked plans to 'ratify' the world.

Excellent Christmas fare for children
1 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

Entertaining film for children. I will not allow political prejudices to cloud my feelings about this film. The principal characters and their dialogue is easy to follow for children, costumes are colorful and location/scenery is pleasant. All pluses for children. If you are looking for period ballet sequences, you should not view. Again, this film is most agreeable to children - all my grandchildren enjoyed this film, and have asked to view it more than once. My only regret is that I should have waited until December to allow the young ones to view this Christmas theme.

Don't allow the distraction of others with political agendas to influence your decision to allow children to enjoy this excellent work.
