Photographed in pleasingly muted earth tones...the film's almost complete reliance on long and medium shots and exclusive use of live, non-optical special effects give it the feel of a theatrical performance blessed with exceptional talent.

Rating: 2/4 -- 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. Full Review

Rating: 2.4/5 -- This is an extremely nasty critique of modern society masquerading as a candy-colored kiddie flick.

The malignant side of Jacques Demy's enchantment Full Review

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. Full Review

Rating: C -- This version of The Pied Piper is not exactly told as a children's fable. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Sep 15, 2003
Rating: 3/4 -- 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. Full Review

Product Description:

THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG director Jacques Demy tackles the dark fairy tale with this star-filled film. Folk rocker Donovan plays the title character who agrees to help the town of Hamelin with its rat infestation, while Donald Pleasence (HALLOWEEN) is a town leader who wants more than just a clean, healthy village. THE PIED PIPER also stars Jack Wild (OLIVER!) and John Hurt (THE ELEPHANT MAN).
