The malignant side of Jacques Demy's enchantment
June 7, 2008
Jacques Demy's version of The Pied Piper is as distanced and uncertain as his masterpiece The Young Girls of Rochefort is ecstatically sure of itself.

November 14, 2007
A dark and smoky affair that, although set in Germany during the Black Death summer of 1349, suggests something brainstormed in a St. Marks Place head shop.
November 14, 2007
Though the legend is left intact, director Demy paints an unforgettable, horribly realistic portrait of the dreary life in the Middle Ages. This is no fairy tale for the kiddies.

This is an extremely nasty critique of modern society masquerading as a candy-colored kiddie flick.

Too often Demy has seemed to be doing little but produce cinematic candy floss; this admittedly imperfect film of Browning's poem is at least trying for more.

This version of The Pied Piper is not exactly told as a children's fable.
