Once upon a time, Tom Thumb and Thumbelina belonged in quite different stories. However, in this animated film the two tiny characters come from the same village. Tom meets Thumbelina after she's escaped from the cruel circus where she is being forced to perform. In fact, it turns out that little Thumbelina manages to look after herself pretty well despite the many scary situations she finds herself in. Lots of songs add to the sweet cheerfulness of this fairytale mashup.
This visually spectacular, dreamlike film from Powell and Pressburger is one of the great classics of British cinema.
