5.0 out of 5 stars "Lili" a completely enchanting, magical film, March 29, 2000
By 
This review is from: Lili [VHS] (VHS Tape)
"Lili" is one of the most magical and enchanting films ever. It is a small film - not lavish and overblown - but a production that grabs your heart from the very beginning. Leslie Caron has never been better and richly deserved the Academy Award nomination (and should have won). Her scenes with the wonderful puppets (some of the best uses of puppetry in films) are completely enchanting. Mel Ferrer, Jean Pierre Aumont, Kurt Kasner and, surprisingly, Zsa Zsa Gabor couldn't be better. The excellent ballet sequence at the end of the film in which the puppets turn into the puppeteer each time Lili dances with them, showing her that the person behind the characters she has come to love is her real love, is a perfect resolution for the story. "Lili" was the basis for an equally wonderful Broadway musical, "Carnival". This is a film that can be viewed over and over and never lose it's charm and magic.

Ditto! Well said and agreed! I grew up with a mother that had a tap, Jazz and Ballet school and also was a puppeteer, so to me. this is interpreted me. no less than as a "Timeless" expression on "The Human Condition/predicament"
