Audience Reviews for Even Dwarfs Started Small

  • Apr 02, 2012
    Residents of an institution escape and wreck the grounds with childlike acts of vandalism and petty cruelty. The entire cast is composed of dwarfs. Almost plotless, but with moments that stick to your soul like a coating of grime (tiny Hombre laughing at the struggling camel may haunt your nightmares for years to come). Animal lovers beware.

    "When we're good no one cares. When we're bad everyone remembers." I may have given this a five star rating, but that's because the scale only goes to five. This is more like a fifty star flick. This may be one of the most brilliantly insane spectacles I've ever had the privilege of seeing. Nothing is safe or sacred as everything not nailed down is destroyed by these little lunatics. And Helmut Doring's laugh is definitely one of the creepiest to have ever found it's way into my ear holes. Add cannibalistic chickens and a crucified monkey to the mix and you've got the makings of a classic in the realm of the insane, a world in which I prefer to spend my time.

    A boring watch even though the title looked oh-so-promising. Also, after seeing great three-dimensional acting like Peter Dinklage in The Station Agent, Jordan Prentice In Bruges, hell even Harold Sakata as Oddjob, then watching a director make a bunch of dwarfs run around being childish and rebellious with little squeaky voices for two hours seems, well, patronising
