The Nutcracker Sweet full movie review - Sickly Sweet
Unfortunately, the world does contain directors who seemingly have no understanding of what a bad movie is. And Eduardo Schuldt happens to be one of them.
The Nutcracker Sweet is at best a very awkward update of Tchaikovsky's classic ballet. In reality, the movie belongs on the trash heap. Aside from interesting animation, there is very little to praise here.
The voice acting is cliché, cinematography feels awkward at best and Schuldt's direction seems to be so subtle as to almost disappear from the film entirely. And don't even get me started on how cliché packed the English script by Eileen Cabiling et al is.
Aronnax Animation Studios made a smart business decision when sending this unnecessary incarnation of the ballet classic straight to video. The company could almost be forgiven for allowing such an awkward excuse for a film to come into existence.
But alas, the world must still behold the monstrosity which is Eduardo Schuldt's 'The Nutcracker Sweet'. And for this, Aronnax Animation Studios deserve to be burnt at the stake.
