| Why in Russia?
As a native of H.C. Andersens homeland Denmark it seems odd to me why the movie doesn't take place here. Why pre-revolutionary Russia? The story doesn't say anything about time or place. maybe it's just my national pride and the story could just as well have any other setting. beside that i really liked the animation and Disney have well managed to capture the feeling of the story. It is nice to see some 2D animation with all that 3D computer graphic junk that floods the movie theaters nowadays. The biggest plus in this movie is the watercolored backgrounds. all in all a great short animation, and I hope to see more of this kind, perhaps even full length animated movies.
