A good movie

I’m pretty sure I did watch this animated feature when I was a kid, probably even at school. I was quite impressed back in those days and I thought it was time for a re-watch. Personally, I always had a weak spot with animated features trying to be aimed towards a grown-up audience. Indeed, the market is dominated by the kiddies stuff, which is fine, but the tone is rather monotonous. It was als... read more

(OK) Disney style, Orwell stuff, well told helped by narration in off. There are some nice montage secuence, and the collective feeling of singing in gutural syllabes near the fire...

Description: This film is an animated adaptation of George Orwell's classic satire on Stalinism.

"Directors: John Halas and Joy Batchelor Based on the novel by George Orwell Starring (voices): Gordon Heath and Maurice Denham A successful farmyard revolution by the resident animals vs. the farmer goes horribly wrong when corrupt pigs hijack it for their personal gain."

"10.11. Rumasti animoidut eläimet perustavat sosialistisen ihannekommuunin, jossa siat/filth nousevat valtaan ja pilaavat kaiken, mikä aatteessa voisi olla hyvää. Sympaattinen elokuva on sellainen sosialismi for dummies -allegoria, jonka pintaraapaisulta tuntuvan aiheensa käsittelyn antaa tavallista helpommin anteeksi, koska siinä nähdään söpöileviä eläimiä ja Vanha Majuri. Toivottavasti minä olen joskus Vanha Majuri."

"29.5 George Orwellin alkuperäisromaani on ajaton poliittinen satiiri. Tämä animaatiofilmatisointi omaa lähtökohtaisesti hyvät asetelmat, mutta Disneyn sensuurin alla on kaunisteltu tiettyjä asioita, jotta länsi näyttäisi pakostakin paremmalta. Suurimmalti osin tässä ollaan kiitettävän uskollisia alkuperäisteokselle, mutta aika ajoin astutaan propagandan puolelle, jota esimerkiksi väkinäisen mieltänostattava lopetus alleviivaa rankalla kädellä. Animaatiojäljeltään varsin r"
