  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Pied Piper

    Un mystérieux joueur de flûte propose aux habitants de la ville de Hamelin de les débarrasser des rats qui pullulent dans la région. Négligeant de lui payer sa récompense, il punit les résidents de la cité en entraînant tous les enfants derrière lui, envoûtés par sa musique ..... Du pipeau ! www.cinefiches.com

  2. Severus Snape's rating of the film The Pied Piper

    (Are you going to Scarborough Fair?) What a waste of time to be unhappy ♥

  3. Max Seqgar's rating of the film The Pied Piper

    Loved the way the dark story of the inquisition growingly overpowers that of the fluteist. Seems a bit made-for-tv, but still very Demy to me! :)

  5. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Pied Piper

    I was really eager to dig into this one when I saw that it was directed by Jaques Demy; the director behind 'Donkey Skin'. If you're attracted by the pedigree, know now that it really isn't worth watching. Lots of observations that are intriguing on paper are rendered dull by the lack of a developed emotional core on the film's part. The film feels like it gets slower with every passing minute. Don't bother.

  6. mireina's rating of the film The Pied Piper

    A good story. Beautiful soundtrack by Donovan

  7. azoulay's rating of the film The Pied Piper

    les décors sont intelligents comme toujours avec Demy, sinon le reste baigne dans une ambiance baba cool des années 70. Il faut aimer les bons sentiments... grosse impression de has been quand -même !

  8. Ned Bookman's rating of the film The Pied Piper

    Fascinating and rather wonderful. IHard to imagine who the intended audience was - it's like 'The Devils' reimagined as a pessimistic fairytale Beautiful, fluid photography by Peter Suschitzky, although the lack of closeups has a distancing effect. Production values are high. And there's a fine cast of creepy character actors (and Donovan - playing a modern guitar - and Jack Wild for the hippies and the kids)

  10. msmichel's rating of the film The Pied Piper

    Producer's tried to replicate the success of 'Donkey Skin' by hiring Demy to do this English language take on the Grimm classic. Unfortunately the dark elements of the tale and the sappy songs of Donovan overpower what could have been far better. Interesting for an early turn by John Hurt and a woefully miscast Donovan. Kept waiting to hear someone yell out '...bring out your dead...'.

  11. Weston Campbell's rating of the film The Pied Piper

    For all you old hippies who hang out at Renaissance fairs.

  12. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film The Pied Piper

    Certainly not what you'd expect with Donovan (the high priest of pop psychedelia). It's a depressing, doom & gloom slice of life in the 14th century...more K Russell than J Demy...still, it's hard to not recommend it
