I didn't realise this was only 30 minutes long, but it manages to feel like a full length feature because of the exquisite animation and of course the fabulous music.
The main thing that struck me when I started watching this, was the realism of the models used. they are so lifelike in both visuals and movement. Peter himself has the most emotive eyes, every scene where his eyes are visible mesmerises you as a viewer - it really is amazing how this film grips you.
The truth is, if the visuals had been poor, the film would still have been watchable as long as the music was well performed. In this case the music is fantastic and the visuals are the best I've seen in modelwork, this raises this beyond film, beyond art, and into another realm.
I can watch this over and over again. So much attention to detail has been given to this project. Little things such as movements of hands are done brilliantly. One of my favourite images is that of the Duck after Peter is locked back in the yard by his Grandfather. The Duck looks a bit forlorn and stares at the gate wondering if Peter is 'coming back out to play' - he raises his wings slightly a few times, you have to see it to understand exactly what I mean. But it gives the Duck a real feel of character.
I love this film, and hopefully you will too.
The hunters are portrayed as two incompetent and cowardly thugs which means that there is a tiny bit of violence in the film. In a scene near the beginning (before any of Prokofiev's music) Peter accidentally collides with one of the hunters in the street and so annoyed is the hunter that he pins Peter up against a wall and then throws him in to a rubbish bin.
The duck pond in the meadow is frozen over which allows for some really good animation as the bird and the duck slide and frolic across the ice. In the original narratored musical versions of this part of the story I suppose one could argue that the dialogue is slightly flawed when the bird says to the duck "what kind of bird are you if you can't fly?" because of course ducks can fly!. Could there be any children out there who grew up believing ducks can't fly as a result of listening to Peter and the wolf?. No such dialogue occurs in this film version so no such misunderstanding can occur.
The animation and attention to detail throughout the film is magnificent. Every hair and piece of fur (all artificial) was placed with tweezers strand by strand and it took an artist a whole month to cover the wolf with fur!. The facial expressions are wonderful and the skin of the human characters is very life like, one of the best examples is the grandfathers hands which look old and veined.Read more ›
