Eye-popping colors and an ominous sun ... seems to anticipate the gurgling demon baby sun that watches over Teletubbyland.

The simplistic children's moral tale somehow delves into the dark recesses of the subconscious, and has gorgeous bright colored set designs to feast on.

Audience Reviews for The Singing Ringing Tree (Singende, klingende Bäumchen)


A spoiled princess demands her prince suitor retrieve the enchanted singing ringing tree for her, but a mischievous dwarf has other ideas for the pair. This inventive, theatrical fairy tale from Germany features lush colorful sets and costumes, and makes the most of its cheap special effects budget; even the stuff that goes wrong (like the nightmarishly creepy giant mechanical goldfish) somehow just adds to the magical atmosphere.
