Six stunningly animated fairy tales with a few mild scares

The movie never comes close to replicating the spell that Reiniger was able to cast using much more primitive techniques, which underlines a chronic problem of computer animation: its very precision squeezes all the magic from the magic lantern.

It is so gentle and whimsical that one wonders if American children, accustomed to the whiz-bang action of most animation, will accept it.

Six mostly engaging fairy tales are digitally rendered with silhouetted characters performing in front of vivid, colorful backgrounds.

Has ... eye-bending backgrounds but a creatively monochromatic foreground that comes to feel like a limitation.

The kaleidoscopic backgrounds offer a colorful counterpoint to the simple silhouettes that form the people, animals, and mythical beasts populating the six fables, each of which end with a ironic twist.

More likely to play well with older children, due to its split-up story line, Ocelot's creation is like nothing else they are likely to see animating the multiplex.

The narratives - involving princesses, sorcerers, dragons, talking animals - are familiar. But Mr. Ocelot invigorates them with lyricism ...

Animated with fluidity and deliberateness that nearly excuses the film's slightness.

The film feels naive for an audience that's ready for some harder truths.

The recent cartoons of Michel Ocelot cleverly advance Lotte Reiniger's prototypical stop-motion technique into the digital age.

It should please sensitive, well-brought-up children and nostalgists.

Tales Of The Night may be computer-animated, but its style is antique.

This is London

It's charming enough and the soundtrack has obviously been put together with care.

The pick-and-mix approach is limiting, but there's no denying these are gorgeous amuse-bouches, likely to be devoured by older, more discerning children and dyed-in-the-wool stoners alike.

The six folk-like tales featuring dragons, witch doctors and a talking horse have a whimsical charm and are beautifully designed but - watched all at once - may leave younger children fidgeting.

While the youngsters to whom the stories are aimed won't take long to get the fidgets, older viewers will undoubtedly appreciate the scenery a tad longer before joining them.
