Editorial Reviews

This 75-minute animated feature is a bright new adventure of Ludwig Bemelmans's French heroine, a much better direction than the ho-hum 1998 live-action film. The makers of the pleasant 30-minute Madeline animated videos--including ace narrator Christopher Plummer--create a rich enough story for this longer video. A man (voiced by Jason Alexander) appears at the French school for girls announcing that he is Madeline's long-lost uncle. First overjoyed that she has family, Madeline confronts her emotions in leaving her friends and Miss Clavel. But something is not right, and Madeline is soon lost in the big city with her trusty friends in pursuit. Of course, all will end well, and usually in rhyme, when it comes to Madeline. A fresh dose of new songs makes this Madeline tale--the first released by Disney--a real keeper. Ages 2 and up. --Doug Thomas

Product Description

She's captured millions of hearts and been adored by every generation -- now Madeline stars in her first animated feature ever! Inspired by the beloved classic books that introduced us to a dozen delightful girls who live in an old house in Paris covered with vines, MADELINE -- LOST IN PARIS is full of spirited fun and five "fantastique" new songs. When a long-lost uncle from Vienna pays a surprise visit, Madeline's dreams of family life seem wonderfully fulfilled -- until she finds herself in the middle of an unfortunate scheme. Madeline then must call upon all of her courage and cleverness to foil an evil plot to take her from the only family she's ever known. Join Madeline, Miss Clavel, Pepito, 11 school friends, and her ever-so-smart dog, Genevieve, in a thrilling Paris adventure you won't want to miss, where everyone learns the true meaning of family!

1.0 out of 5 stars Highly unsuitable for young children October 7, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This terribly dreadful story invloving the kidnapping of children and using hair to make lace is totally out of tune with the previous Madeline videos. Whatever positive message the writers intended just gets obliterated in the dark aspects of the story. I viewed it with my 4yr old who was physically shivering (yes!) at various points of the show. When it got too much, she told me to turn it off, something she's never done when it comes to Madeline. I watched it to the end and found it confusing that Madeline is presented here as an orphan. An earlier video, Madeline's Christmas, clearly shows her papa & mama. Overall, a dismal effort in the research, writing and presentation of a Madeline story. Very disappointing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Madeline Meets Silence of the Lambs March 20, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Let me see if I have this straight. Madeline's father, who filled her room with flowers and toys when she had her appendix out, is now apparently dead. A strange man posing as an "uncle" acts out a scheme--too subtle and disturbing to explain to your small child--for abducting Madeline away from her tearful friends and Miss Clavel. The uncle then SELLS a distraught Madeline to a sadistic shop owner (Lauren Bacall, how's your career going?),who keeps Madeline and other little girls ENSLAVED in a dark basement to make lace out of HUMAN HAIR! Her best friend down there is gaunt little girl who has been there a long,long time and can't speak without coughing. At one point, as punishment for talking back to her captor, Madeline is placed alone in a tiny, dank cell. She is ultimately rescued by her friends and the police before an unimaginable fate. How did the police get there? On a tip from the "uncle"--not because of any act of conscience on his part-- but because he worked a plea bargain with the police to get a lighter sentence!!

My wife and I both found this video to be relentlessly cruel and completely bizarre. Whatever positive theme you or your child were supposed to glean from all of this--be optimistic? can to anything? makes a nice doily?--was totally overwhelmed by a sadistic storyline and perverse characters that will find you trying to comfort and reassure your child for days. ("Daddy,I don't want to watch this!...Daddy can we go by this!...No, daddy I don't want to see this! Daddy, where is she now?") It would be of great satisfaction to me if this review would keep other small eyes from being victimized by this garbage and the utterly deceptive, so-called editorial review. "Lost in a big city?"

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money November 15, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This is a disastrous episode in the Madeline chronicles. I gave this video one star only because the posting screen will not allow me to rate it zero or negative stars! The film tells the story of the orphan Madeline being kidnapped into slavery by an evil gang of lace makers. The terrifying story line left my three-year-old twin daughters blubbering in fear! Blatantly contradicts all previous storylines by orphaning Madeline. Definitely not suitable for my children, yours should approach with extreme caution.

By Vanessa
Format:VHS Tape
I watched this movie before I let my 3-year-old daughter watch it, and I'm glad I did because I don't want her to see it. It is too dark for little girls--there's kidnapping, sickness, child labor, threats, lying, and general fear. It should not be shown to young children because of its dark themes. It's true that there are redeeming themes of perserverence, cooperation, and friendship, but they are overshadowed by the overall story. Although it is for older children, I don't plan on owning it because of the negative feelings it gave *me*. You would do better to get the 25-minute videos such as "Madeline and the Bad Hat," "Madeline's Rescue," and "Madeline at the Ballet." The songs are better, the stories more uplifting, and the overall tones are easier on the tender feelings of young girls and boys.

4.0 out of 5 stars So what's all the fuss about? August 3, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I approached the new Disney "Madeline" film with a certain amount of reservation after reading some of the reviews on this page. Having watched the film twice now, I can only say, "what is all the fuss about?" I found the video to be an involving, sweet little story which is well-worth owning for any Madeline fans.
Let me address some specific issues. Firstly, the fact that Madeline is an orphan. True, this was not contained in the Bemelmans' books - but, being a feature film, this new offering is clearly following the live-action feature released a couple of years back by Columbia/Tri-Star, which established this fact. It does add some poignancy to the story and strengthens Madeline's relationship with Miss Clavel.
As to the "cruel, bizarre" story, the "sadistic" plot twists or the "inappropriate" shots, I found none outside what most cartoons feature - and even what the Madeline series has included to date. Indeed, the section in "Madeline and the Bad Hat" where Pepito constructs a guillotine, and the section in the live-action film where Madeline and Pepito are kidnapped by the "Idiots" and imprisoned in the back of their van (tied up, no less) are potentially more terrifying for young children than the child labour presented in this film, where the most menacing object is a pair of scissors used to cut hair. I could also list many other Disney films (Snow White, Pinocchio, Toy Story, etc) which contain more frightening material, too - an interest in the cruel aspects of human nature has always been an undercurrent of cartoons and of childhood itself.
Through her trials, Madeline is presented as a brave little girl who does not give up hope and remains loyal to her friends.
