Truly uncanny premise on the same vein as Miike, but a one note film.
What did the early Burton movies have in common, were they deep or complex? I guess not, but they had a real appreciation for the strange and bizarre with rich textures,imaginative details. And they managed to investigate the nature of coping with difference. This postmodern modification of the century old story only has a figment of those qualities, even the plasticised aesthetics is artificial. I think Burton had consumed too much of the pill that makes him small and minor.
For me in this particular case: Forced plot=detached viewing=inefficiency despite some good performances.
For a good 5 minutes reminded me how much I missed Disney animations. For the rest reminded me how much I didn't miss Disney animations.
