"Hansel and Gretel" is pleasantly relaxing family viewing. It's a sort of made-for-TV pantomime. It makes no attempt at any sort of reality and is quite "tongue in cheek", but fun. If you enjoy Pantomimes and watch it in that spirit you'll like it. Low-brow yes, but well written and put together. It's a lot better than a great many US made melodramatic family movies.
