Gulliver, the lone survivor of a violent storm, swims ashore and falls asleep, exhausted by his ordeal. He wakes up to find himself in the strange, miniaturized kingdom of the Lilliputs. People, no taller than six inches are fascinated by the "giant" and plan to use his immense strength to defeat their enemy. Gulliver spends a delightful time with his tiny friends and steps in to prevent war between two kingdoms that were once on friendly terms.
"Gulliver’s Travels" was written by the famous 17th Century writer Jonathan Swift and adapted for the screen by Edmond Seward and his gifted team. The well-known tale is retold in a fascinating manner in this animated feature. The stunning visuals, hilarious dialogues, lively background music and vivid imagery witnessed throughout the film are characteristic of the Fliescher brothers, Max and David who produced and directed the movie. The visuals are absolutely stunning, considering the fact that this feature was produced in an age when computer assisted programs were unheard of. No detail is left to imagination and the story unfolds as an uninterrupted narrative. It is not surprising that he film went on to win two Academy Award Nominations - for the Best Original Score and the Best Song (Faithful Forever), and surely deserves the accolades that have been showered upon it through the decades."
