Storyline

Jennie, a terrier, has it all -- but leaves home after deciding there must be more to life. In a distant town, she learns that the Mother Goose Theatre needs a leading lady. She applies; the manager tells her she lacks experience. She's not sure what that is, but sets out to get it. A cat who drives a milk truck provides Jennie with breakfast and a ride to a white house that's in need of a nanny; the catch is that if the nanny can't get the baby to eat, it's down to the basement where a lion resides. Can Jennie gain the experience she needs without becoming the lion's lunch? And, indeed, is there more to life, or in a land of lions and squalling babies, is there no place like home?

Genius View of Love, Death, Parting and Sorrow
18 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

Maurice Sendak loved his little dog Jennie but she did not love him. Just before her death Sendak began a picture book about Jennie's attitude towards him and life and what happened to her following her death. This short film is a work of quality that even more than the book evokes a sense of the tragedy that that is the relationship between long - lived man and short - lived dog. Anyone who comes upon the film without not being aware of the source material might not understand what is shown until the conclusion. That's one of its virtues. The beauty of the visuals is unsurpassed in film . This is true even tho some of the characters are grotesque in the style of Tenniel's art for Alice in Wonderland. The viewer's reaction to this stop motion puppet masterpiece may well depend on how he feels about animals. For me it's crushingly sad. A must see for anyone interested in dog/pet stories.
