commenting on the music and charm of the movie (by rboller-3)
I thought this movie maybe a bit graphic for young children was still charming. It was able to make me laugh and feel with the characters during the more heartfelt scenes. I thought the animation was beautiful, and the storyline was well-developed.There weren't gaps in the plot, leaving the audience to suspend their disbelief and make up excuses as to what or why something occurred.The music was not only memorable, but it had a range of style, including haunting melodies and catchy beats. And the singers weren't concerned with sounding like pop singers, taking the audience out of <more>
One of the best animated movies I've ever seen. (by zactac)
In Anastasia you expect there to be a few musical numbers, a battle of good and evil, and romance. Well there is that but, it comes out so beautifully to where this doesn't even feel like an animated movie. It feels more real than you'd ever expect from an animated movie like this.Anastasia is a movie about a girl named Anya who lost nearly all of her memory about her past and her family. Now with the help of a con-man named Dimitri shes going to Paris to learn the truth about her past. While on this journey an evil sorcerer who's the reason her family died in the first place is <more>
out bring an end to the Romanav line forever. So as Dimitri and Anya grow closer to learning the truth about her past they must also make a difficult choice about what to do as they begin to fall in love.Anastasia is a movie that just about the entire family will enjoy. It is light-hearted, filled with laughter, beautiful music that will make you want to dance and sing, and adventure to keep you excited throughout the film. This is a film I recommend to everyone who wants to find good whole-some family entertainment to watch, because Anastasia is perfect for that very reason.
I can't remember exactly the first time I saw the movie. I mean, I've had it on VHS since I could remember. I guess I've just been watching it since then. The movie is quite a masterpiece. The script, the plot, the music. Gosh, I love the music. I swear that I never get tired of watching it. In my opinion, it's my most favorite cartoon musical yet.I also enjoyed the romance. It was perfect. Love at first sight, and a good, happy ending that nobody expects.Even the actors and actresses who voiced the characters were perfect and unique, it's what really made the movie beside <more>
the plot and music. I love how classic the graphics are.
Let others carp about the disservices to history: this Anastasia rises above its flaws to offer an engaging, emotionally resonant story of a girl's search for identity. Within its historical, quasi-factual context, the film presents a situation almost everyone can relate to--that of trying to find one's place in the world. Orphaned Anya's quest for her past and, consequently, her future strikes universal emotional chords: singing "Journey to the Past," she sets out with both trepidation and hope to find her identity and her place in the world. The haunting, poignant <more>
"Once Upon a December" sequence, one of the finest scenes in any recent film, is unforgettable, as we watch Anya's yearnings take the form of a ghostly dance with memories of a vanished life. And the final reunion where hostility melts gradually into acceptance, is one of the most moving and satisfying moments in film. Everything about the film bespeaks loving attention and quality: the magnificent animation and design re-create lavish Russian and Parisian locations complete with recognizable artworks and cameos by celebrities of the '20s , and the screenplay balances action, humor, and genuine emotion. Villain Rasputin is clearly aimed at children, and some of the repartee between Anya and unlikely hero Dimitri may seem jarringly anachronistic, but viewers of any age should still enjoy this timeless coming-of-age story.
Anastatsia is without doubt one of the best animated movies ever made, for several reasons. It's an amazing story, filled with adventure, romance, smart dialog and wonderful music. The story is set in Russia and other parts of Europe, both in the wonderful palaces of the Czar family and the french countryside. It tells the story of the lost princess Anastasia, and uses the rumors that she as the only one of the Romanov family survived the massacre during the Russian revolution. Anya, a girl with no memory of her past, meets with two men of questionable professions that promise to take her <more>
to Paris, if she's willing to try to convince the Dowager Emperess that she might be Anastasia... Unfortunately, the evil sorcerer Rasputin the man who killed the Romanov family also knows that Anya is alive, and swears to kill her, whatever the cost... So Anya is taken on a magical adventurous ride through Europe, to find her family. One of the best things about the movie is the characters. They seem so real, like real persons, not platonic, "a beautiful damsel in distress", "a handsome hero" end of story... The music is wonderful, better than in many Disney movies, and the story very good.The only things I don't like about the film, is the things that's dangerous about making movies about real historical events. The Romanov Family weren't the innocents victims they're painted out to be, and the fact that the story is based on that... But I've only started to think about this now when I'm older, so... Anyone who likes a good movie, rent or buy Anastasia. It's worth it. I should recommend the Swedish version, if someone here was to see it. Helen SjÃ¶holm is the singer of Anya's role, and she is one of the best singers in Sweden...
This is my personal favourite of the Don Bluth movies. I also recommend American Tail, Land Before Time and All Dogs Go To Heaven. Anastasia is just beautiful, and was one of the most requested films when we had our family cinemas. A couple of years ago, I got it on video, and all those memories came back. I love this movie so much. The animation is gorgeous. The characters are well drawn, and the backgrounds and colours are stunning. There is a lot of wit between the characters. Not to mention a truly sweet romance between Anastasia and Dimitri. Whoever hated this movie, must be told, that <more>
this is so much more watchable than Richard Rich's King and I. Anastasia herself is so beautiful. The highlights were Anastasia's dream and the scene on the train. The songs are what make this movie. My favourite is "Once Upon a December" as it is so nostalgic, haunting and poignant. All the other songs are well done and move the story forward. Even "Dark of the Night". As for the story, yes it is historically inaccurate, but so is Pocahontas, and this is marginally better. It was so well told. In some Don Bluth movies, they lose the essence right from minute one, but not here. As for the voice talents, they were all impeccable. Meg Ryan was suitably feisty as Anastasia, and Liz Callaway did her singing voice beautifully. John Cusack put an immense amount of charm into his voice-over, although Dimitri was for me was the weakest character in the movie. Kelsey Grammar has great fun as Vladmir, and also check him out as Zozi in Bartok the Magnificent. Christopher Lloyd voices villain Rasputin with over the top menace, and the villain loses his body parts here. We have all had days like that. Hank Azaria is also great as Bartok.Underrated Broadway actress Bernadette Peters has a great french accent, and I had so much fun with her singing "Paris hold the key to your heart." For me, Angela Lansbury provides a completely human and poignant character in the Dowager Empress. Her prologue was so well paced, and there was a side to the great character actress that I never knew she had. In conclusion, a sweet and beautiful animation that is essential to all animation lovers. 9.5/10 Bethany Cox
I absolutely LOVE this movie! I am a little amused by all the people having a problem with this movie not being historically accurate. Need I remind people that this is a cartoon, not a documentary? I was actually impressed with the attention to details: Nicholas looks very much like he did in life, Anastasia's little brother's sickness is not overlooked he is walking with a limp , 'Once upon a December's words 'Someone holds me safe and warm... ' sound so much like a Russian Gypsy song! That said, I do have to say that there are a few things that could have been <more>
prevented by hiring one Russian speaking person. Examples: When Dimitry and Anya first meet, he has a problem pronouncing her name. That would never happen. Anya is a very common name in Russia and would not be mistaken for anything else. Also, when Sophie opened the door she says something that IS NOT a Russian name, very silly. Another example would be Anastasia looking through her family album, when they make her memorize thing, remember the picture of uncle Vanya? "Loved his vodka, got it Anya?" Well, he just looks like a common peasant, not a member of royal family.BartokÂ…. I wonder who thought of the nameÂ…. It is not a Russian nameÂ… My guess is that it was meant to be 'BRATOK' which means 'little brother', used to address a companion, a friend. So.. those are my thoughts. All in all, I highly recommend the movie. Not as an educational historical reference, but as a wonderful entertaining musical animated movie! The fact that is NOT Disney is actually a big plus for me!Enjoy!
The last time I saw this, I thought there were maybe too many songs in it that distracted the feel from the movie. But now that I've seen it again, it's clear that the songs are well written, along with the storyline.This is not based on a true story, only loosely on a few rumors that the real Anastasia survived the killing of her family. The heroine Anya is like a Disney princess who is desperate to find out who she is and where she belongs, after suffering from amnesia following the separation of her family. The villain is the brilliant Rasputin, back from the dead, intent on <more>
extracting revenge on the Romanovs, thus starting the Russian Revolution. Dimitri and Vladimir at first are looking to find the ideal Anastasia look alike in order to get the riches from her real mother in Paris.A lot of Bluth's films revolve around a journey and a couple involving some history on Russia. I really enjoyed the songs that played over the end credits, "At the Beginning" and "Journey To The Past" sung in her own way by Aaliyah, the beautiful angelic voiced R&B singer who left way too soon.Brilliantly animated for its time and enjoyable for adults, Anastasia remains a classic family film.
I loved "Anastasia". It is easily one of the best movies directed by the great animator Don Bluth, who also made classics as "The Land Before Time" and "The Secret of NIMH". It has all the feeling of classic animated films like "Snowhite" and "Cinderella", with gorgeous animation, beautiful music, great voice performances and many memorable sequences. Meg Ryan and John Cusack are great in their roles, while Christopher Lloyd is great as the villain. This is a great for all the family, and it is shame that there aren't very much animated <more>
films like this in the recent times The closest thing that I saw recently was "The princess and the Frog" which was pretty good
