Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 November 2012
This is a rare film: one that has almost no redeeming qualities. The real travesty is that those who know and enjoy Tchaikovsky's music will find themselves bitterly disappointed. No ballet, very little of the original music, dreadfully fey lyrics poorly set to some of the greatest symphonic melodies the world has ever known (although totally unrelated to the original Nutcracker) and rather wooden acting are the best bits; the inane and unsubtle plot - such as it is - is complemented perfectly by ropey dialogue, abysmal direction and a sense of purposelessness that permeates every strand of the production. In fairness, the actors do the best they can to combat the overwhelming weaknesses of the project but their efforts are doomed to failure, confronted with the unevenness of direction which blights the thing.

One redeeming feature is that the film overall is so bad that it may - in time - achieve a sort of cult status, but that's not enough reason to waste money on buying the DVD.
