Adaptación expresionista al cuento clásico de Jacob y Wilhelm Grimm elaborada por la maestra en animación por siluetas, la germana Lotte Reineger

It is a relatively sophisticated piece of film-making, with good pacing and editing and an evocative and brooding landscape adding atmosphere and depth to the usual finely worked foreground characters."
Ruth Lingford (BFI Screenonline)

There, she began turning her silhouette art, inspired by the shadow plays popular in China and Indonesia, into short films based on fairy tales, many from the Brothers Grimm. (...)"
