"I was ecstatic when I received my copy of The Snow Queen. It always seemed to be on TV in the 1980s, and it was a childhood favourite of mine. I must admit I watched the dubbed version; I usually loathe dubbing, but this was the version I watched as a child, and it wouldn't be the same to me without it. However, there is the option of watching with the original Russian dialogue with English subtitles. The transfer is great, and is presented in its original ratio. Cinematography and colours are lush, and the film hits a brilliant chord of childlike fantasy. Love it."
The definitive version

"If you saw this on BBC television in the 1960's you will remember the "Northern Lights" curtaining effect at the snow queens palace and Kai doing an ice puzzle. (You may not remember the lady inkwell, as I think this may have been cut for television - not essential to the story). The transfer is faultless. Buy it now"
