Cast & Crew
A gorgeous piece of work.
Any film that echoes the landscape of Doctor Zhivago is hard to dislike for too long.
Flawed but not fatally, this ambitious epic's strength lies not just with its haunting melodies, pretty pictures, star voices and kid-friendly sidekicks -- the usual shtick that makes Disney tick.
A promising launch for Fox's new animation studio, which has declared war on Disney.
The whole process of watching Anastasia is a thoroughly enjoyable one, and it proves that any studio willing to put forth the time, money, and effort can match Disney.
