The Snow Queen and Other Stories

(3.1 stars; 14 reviews)

This project features four longer stories by Hans Christian Andersen.
Andersen's fairy tales, which have been translated into more than 125 languages, have become culturally embedded in the West's collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. They have inspired motion pictures, plays, ballets, and animated films. ( Summary from Wikipedia ) (2 hr 24 min)
