Audience Reviews for Hansel and Gretel

Tim Burton's weird early short film adaptation of the story of "Hansel and Gretel" features Japanese actors and puppets. It has this jazzy piano score that feels out of place and just makes you think of Mr Roger's Neighborhood. This has some creativity to it, but feels half thought out and amateurish. Frankly, it just isn't that good.
