The Little Match Girl



Lets start from the beginning, this is a Walt Disney movie, but it’s much more different than anything you have seen from them up until now. This was a specific time, the last breath of 2D animation and that emotional approach to movies.

Nowadays it’s all about focus groups and the profit. This movie is based on a Hans Christian Andersen short story and in case you didn’t know his stories are pretty brutal by today’s standards. And this is a lie too, because they’re only brutally honest and coming from the heart.

Poor girl, alone in a middle of the winter is selling matches, but no one seems to care. There you go, you’re already a bit sad. I will leave you with just this and let the rest bring the tears to your eyes… We need these sobering movies because we strayed away from our humanity too much, especially in the recent decades.
