Product Description

Another animated retelling of the classic fairytale. Cinderella is a slave to her evil stepmother and ugly sisters. When an invitation goes out to them to attend the Prince's ball, Cinderella is left at home in her rags. She is visited by her fairy Godmother and her wish to go to the ball is granted, but she must return home by midnight.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This version of Cinderella strays quite a way away from the traditional story while retaining much of the original concept. In this case the prince is changed into the role of a star dancer who is looking for a new partner who will have all the required attributes. Briefly, the revised story is as follows:

Currently Cinderella, a trainee star ballerina previously taught by her now deceased mother, is a member of a ballet school where the star dancer favours two protégées of lesser ability over Cinderella in order to emphasise her own superiority. These three roles would normally be Cinderella's stepmother and step-sisters. Cinderella is supported solely by the ballet mistress who takes on the role normally taken by the fairy godmother. Eventually Cinderella is able to attend the Gala dance event, dances with the star dancer, leaves at midnight and is eventually found and partnered by the star dancer after much searching amongst international ballet companies. Her opponents are thus defeated. In this way the basic concepts of the story are maintained in a very different context.

The roles normally taken by the stepmother and step-sisters are extremely skilfully danced by three men - Josef Varga, Nicholas Blanc and Francois Petit. There is a great deal of humour exhibited by these men where their dancing errors are surrounded by much 'good' dancing. As a result they can be seen as 'nearly' good and certainly not just silly. This is close to pantomime and will greatly appeal to those who like such slapstick. It is hard to envisage a better way of delivering this concept which is remarkably tastefully built into the ballet to provide moments of light relief rather than the usual unpleasantness of the step-sisters and stepmother.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disney or not... 10 Dec 2010
By Anna
Format:DVD
The Disney version is far slicker and polished but kids still really enjoy this movie. A good buy if you want to give a child an hour or so of magic.
