5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanted is full of the joys of spring., 14 April 2008
This review is from: Enchanted [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
This film is one of the best films to come from the Walt Disney studio. I saw this at my local multiplex when it came out in December 2007. I fell in love with it and enjoyed every minute. When I left, I had a smile on my face knowing that my inner child had been released.

It starts off in animation where we see Princess Giselle spring cleaning the house with the help of her woodland friends. Then after a complication with a giant ocre, she falls in love with her Prince Charming and plan to marry the next day. But the evil Queen Narissa has other plans and wants the throne for herself. So she plunges Giselle down a magical well to a place "where there are no happy ever afters". Giselle ends up in modern day New York appearing through a drain hole. She is lost and confused until she happens upon a lawyer and his daughter who becomes smitten with this damsel. Prince Edward soon follows in an attempt to win back his lost love.

What makes this film such a delight to watch is that it appeals to everybody young and old alike. One of my favourite scenes is when Giselle is left in the lawyer's apartment and decides to give it a spring clean so she starts singing and the animals from doves to ferrets to bees give her a helping hand. It's such a delightful scene that one immediately thinks of Snow White. The all-singing, all-dancing routines are well played and the set pieces are wonderful.

The scenes from animation to live action are extremely well conceived and everyone involved are having a ball. I thought that Amy Adams was perfect casting as Princess Giselle giving her such vulnerability, sensitivity and warmth that is touching. An absolute joy and a pleasure to watch, this film is Disney at their best.
