Alice In Wonderland * Nick Willing * 1999

I remember that as a child I saw some Alice In Wonderland animation a few times. My girlfriend bought this cheap DVD also expecting this animation, but it turned out to be a ‘real’ film. Not really my genre, childrens/family films, but actually this version of the famous tale is very entertaining. An impressive cast with Woopy Goldberg (magnificent as the smiling Cheshire Cat), Ben Kingsley (Major Caterpillar), Christopher Lloyd (Carpenter), Peter Ustinov (Walrus) and Miranda Richardson with a briliant part as Queen of Hearts which is like her part as the queen in Blackadder but even more over the top. I don’t suppose I have to say anything about the story, so I will just say that this film version has a nice absurd atmosphere, great stages, costumes and computer animations and great acting. So if you (or your children) want to see an Alice In Wonderland, I would say that this is a good option.
