A delightful animated film based on Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes
The story: a wolf tells a lady about his misfortune, a story involving the truth about Red Riding Hood. But he is a wolf with a plan...
The animation does justice to Roald Dahl's incredible fantasy and irresistible and sometimes even cruel humour - it does not always end well for the naughty ones! - , but it seems to lack Quentin Blake's unique style. Still, the animation has its own merit.
Dominic West succeeds in giving the big bad wolf a soul: he is a tormented character one can relate to: intelligent, vengeful, but still more human than most of the human characters in the story.
The bound between Red Riding Hood and Snow White is sweet and seems to evolve beyond friendship, but the hints remains subtle.
David Walliams does some funny voices for some lesser characters, such as wolf Rex (a nephew) and Twig Pig.
A very nice animated two-part movie. Kids are going to love it, their parents too! Still, there is some violence and some scenes might be upsetting for young children.
