This is a powerful film with beautiful animation. Almost Disneyesque in its presentation, this is a truly adult cartoon with a strong message about the failed promises of socialism and how power can corrupt anybody given the right opportunity and with an optimistic feeling that no matter how shitty it gets, the people can still rise up to overthrow oppression, you just have to do it.
George Orwell'ın yazdığı, Edebiyat'ın önemli eserlerinden biri olan "Animal Farm"ın Animasyonu. Aylar önce kitabını okumuştum, Animasyon olarakta izlemek iyiydi. Büyük küçük herkes Kitabını okumalı ve Animasyonunu seyretmeli. Hayvanlar üzerinden Rus Devrimi'ne yapılan önemli göndermeleri ve Anti-Komünist yaklaşımları görebilirsiniz.
Like a Disney cartoon from the 30s or 40s, but with an unexpected kind of darkness and social commentary. Delightful and surprising adaptation of Orwell's fable. The different ending that the directors gave to the story is not so problematic as many people say. Even if History tolds us the reasons for that change, I think the essential of Orwell's thoughts and fears is wonderfully put on screen here.
ANIMAL FARM is the second adaptation from George Orwell's book that I watched. The first one is NINETEEN-EIGHTY FOUR. I haven't read the book yet, actually. I just knew that the book is a satire or metaphor of communism, maybe capitalism too. For a movie about criticism of communism regime, I feel ANIMAL FARM failed to reach it. It just looked like a simple criticism of someone with a big "power". Not for kids...
The real problem about this story, is its veracity.
The drawings are brilliant because they hide all the cruelty underneath the Animal Farm (a.k.a. Our Society) behind the kindness of the illustration style.
This film is not about Communism or Capitalism, but about the relationship between Power and Society. And the reality is that it seems that we are living through this delusion we call "democracy".
El comunismo y el capitalismo hasta cierto punto parecen confundirse en esta historia sobre cómo los juegos de poder se van construyendo en el modelo de una comunidad en su estado más incipiente. Hay además, varios tipos de poder, tanto los justos como los injustos. El filme asoma una especie de justicia ante un líder que puede ser justo, representado incluso en el hombre.
"And then the Animals rose up and struck down the unnatural tyrant Napoleon and his fellow pigs before returning to their normal, human-run farms where they all lived happily ever after as God intended. Just the way Orwell wrote it!"
