Cast & Crew
Here, the familiar tale is retold with concessions to feminist self-determination and camp humor, bending the Grimm Brothers' tale without infringing on its basic beauty.
Singh is much more skilled as a visual artist than a storyteller, and his artistic fortunes seem to rise and fall with the inspiration of his screenwriters. In this case he's lucked out.
The dwarves provide wonderful fun, Singh's visuals have true magic and Alan Menken's score is charming.
Everything looks, well, fantastic.
An attitude of mischief and charm rather than outright satire.
Singh brings cheeky humor, an eccentric sensibility and an enchanting look to his re-imagined tale.
