I try to appreciate others' work. However, I can't help feeling disappointed about the film. I even cannot finish watching all parts of it. I watched half of it then directly jumped to the final part.
All tales written by Hans Christian Andersen are just too beautiful and meaningful. So far no one successfully reedits his stories and puts them on the screen. Actually I don't like any change of the story. The revised version is tediously long and twists some underlying meanings of the story.
Fortunately, we have excellent books to read.
