Anastasia : This film is the vision of Don Bluth and Gary Goldman as they tell a story of the last surviving child of the Russian Royal Family who not knowingly joins two con men on an adventure to reunite her with her grandmother, the Dowager Empress, who is rich and offered a reward to anyone who can reunite her with her granddaughter however there is also the plot of the evil undead Rasputin who seeks to kill Anastasia and fulfil a dark purpose of his own.
For children film this isn't like any normal Disney film which has the right balance of comedy and horror which are almost side by side with each other throughout, there are no hidden messages or anything you'd expect to find in a normal Disney animation whilst watching Anastasia. But what you do get it a wonderfully animated, colourful and insightful motion picture which motion wise is stunning.
In terms of story, there is a lot there and every character has lots of development to their character so you can get to know them throughout the course of the film and allow yourself as a viewer to invest in them, as you'll have to throughout the course of the film. I think everything that surrounds the film, buildings, surrounding background like trees, all look very realistic and I like that. The raw realistic approach of things. You know it looks like a building because you believe what your seeing is a building because you see it.
Another thing about this film which is more contributing to Disney is when you watch it back, you are allowed to concentrate more on certain features of the character, for instance there is a scene where Anastasia leans in and there is light shading on the rest of her body in the shot but the eyes are what your concentrating on in the shot, and it closes in and the concentration is key to it. You don't get those kind of shots in Disney films.
