The Pied PiperDVD
Folk singer Donovan stars in Jacques Demy's darkly offbeat adaptation of the Brothers Grimm classic as the mysterious musician who arrives in the Black Plague-infested town of 14th-century Hamelin with the promise of leading the diseased rats away. But with Hamelin divided among religious, social, and political lines, the Piper's price isn't met, causing him to lure the local children out of town instead. Donald Pleasence, John Hurt, and Jack Wild also star. 86 min.. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English; Subtitles: English; theatrical trailers.
