I found this film to be one of the most fascinating and beautifully
made adaptations of Lewis Carroll's masterpiece: While the Disney
version captured perfectly well the humor, joy and lighthearted
elements of the "Alice in Wonderland" books, this movie does a great work
portraying in a very original manner the other side of the same story,
showing how dark and twisted it could be…And yet, this is strangely
faithful to the original story (Well, at least to a certain point)
The result, in my opinion, was fairly impressive, being one of the best
and most memorable works of Jan Švankmajer, combining perfectly well
stop-motion animation with live-action, while at the same time it
includes many of the recurring motifs in the rest of the movies and
shorts directed by this Czech filmmaker.
I would recommend this movie to any viewer who wasn't completely
satisfied by the Disney version of this same story, since "Alice" is
able to show the dark and mature side of what is often considered just
an ordinary fairy tale, despite being much more complex than that.
