wow!
9 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

I'm 16, and i remember seeing this film when i was a little kid, my parents had a copy, i loved this film! the ragman scared the living daylights out of me! and the way the puppets moved was really freaky, lol. but this film, has become one of the most rarest films in the world now! hard to come by, especially in england. i managed to find a copy in dallas, and ordered it the other day. basically the story is of a girl called clara who gets a nutcracker doll from her uncle drosselmeyer (tick tock tee, lol) and she gets some sort of fever, and starts hallucinating several different things, including the doll doing battle with mice, yay! lol. anyway, this film is really really really really great, and should you ever get a chance to watch it, WATCH IT! you will definitely not be disappointed.
