イントゥ・ザ・ウッズ / Into the Woods

"グリム童話を混ぜ込んだダークファンタジー。"
舞台は森。色彩を控えめにした映像が連なります。ディズニー映画らしからぬ演出こそがこの映画の特徴。赤ずきん、ジャックと豆の木、シンデレラ、ラプンツェルの兄と、童話の中にうごめく人のエゴを前面に押し出した物語です。四編の物語が重なるので、本筋が始まるのは後半から。長い助走の分、一気に膨れ上がります。何がって? 闇が。主要キャストの歌唱力は言わずもがな。

"A dark fantasy story, mixing 4 of Grimm's Fairy Tales."
Lower Colored Images in the forest are appearing continuously. It doesn't look like Disney films, but this is a kind of feature of this film. Little Red, Jack in the beanstalk tale, Cinderella, and a brother of Rapunzel are there, and the story expose their selfish and human-like personality. Though it consumes first half of the film to follow these 4 tales, this long approach is leading the explosion of their emotion. By the way, I don't have to talk you about the cast's talent of singing, right?
