Review

  • My disappointment was hearing that critics had found fault with this work of perfection.

    The characterisation has been thought through carefully and the temptation to make caricatures of the step-mother and her daughters consciously resisted.

    The retelling of "Cinderella" (apparently known, in the 19th century, as "Cinderslut") with the benefits of modern techniques and processes is impeccable.

    Often, films that are 'great works' suffer from some minor weakness or other, a detail not followed through, a hasty bit of editing, a clipped or overly long scene but never did I feel that could be said about Disney's film. "TLC" (tender loving care") from beginning to end.

    True to Walt's original intentions, here is a film for all the family (well, some teenagers may want to wait a little).

    Good luck, it's great to see memorable films making it to our screens.
