| Fairly poor effort...
Le Petit Poucet is disappointing on many levels. Firstly, although it seemingly adheres to the original Perrault tale, it pads it out adding unnecessary details and the ogre is frankly ridiculous (looking more like a warhammer character than a traditional mythical creature).

Secondly the quality of the film is well below that of a film made in 2001 (the same year that the technically adventurous Amélie was released). The set design is unrealistic and the special effects are mostly terrible. To compare this to the work of Tim Burton is fairly adventurous. The sets in Burton's work are far more surreal, but realistic than those found here. Although I realise that Jeunet and Burton are big time producers, and that Le Petit Poucet was a little more tightly budgeted, I would have preferred to see a more simpler, more honest representation.

This film would work much better as a theatre production, and it is true that the fairy tale is generally a fairly theatrical genre, but this to me, seems more like an amateur production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
