(sorry, i meant Flower, duh)

Has anyone else seen this Nutcracker movie (from quite a while ago)? It's... ahem... interesting.

I don't know it, but it seems like it conflates the Nutcracker with Pinocchio (a real, live boy!)

While far from being one of my favorite musical theatre lyricists, I know that Tim Rice did the new lyrics for this adaptation--all I've heard have been quite... something.

When the movie came out it got some of the most bizarre reviews I've ever read--I know it was apparently a labour of love for its director, Andrei Konchalovsky, and largely financed in Russia but many critics said that a lot of it seemed to be a child's fantasy take on the Holocaust (?!), with Nazi mice, etc and other very dark subject matter. Roger Ebert's review has the hysterical quote: "One of those rare holiday movies that may send children screaming under their seats."
