I've seen this before - more than once. Charming and humorous, this is a unique interpretation of an oft-staged but well loved story. Well worth your time, and a must see if you're a fan of stop-motion animation.

I've seen this movie before, but there is so much more in repeated viewings. And if you go chasing rabbits & you know you;re going to fall. Very mind blowing.
