Das letzte Einhorn: Directed by Jules Bass, Arthur Rankin Jr.. With Alan Arkin, Jeff Bridges, Mia Farrow, Tammy Grimes. A beautiful unicorn sets out to learn if she truly is the last of her kind in this sparkling animated musical.

“I saw this film so many times when I was younger, and loved it. The songs are actually really lovely, but I do think that Jeff Bridges singing lacked support. The animation is actually very nice. Yes it does fall flat sometimes, but it is the 80s after all, besides overall it was quite stylish, beautiful and whimsical. The screenplay is very good also, and if I am not mistaken, it was written by the author, so there was a hint of faithfulness. Apparently Haggardu0026#39;s lines were literally adapted from the book. The voice talents are top notch. Alan Arkin was more than adequate as Schmendrick, and Tammy Grimes was poignant as Molly Grue. Jeff Bridges and Christopher Lee added a huge amount to the film, as did Angela Lansbury as Mommy Fortuna. Topping them all, was Mia Farrow as the brooding and sensitive Amalfia/Unicorn. The red Bull was also really sinister, and Rene Auberjoinis made me laugh as the Skull. All in all, an imaginative movie. 8/10 Bethany Cox”
