Like you said, the movie seems dark to a child, but even more dark to an adult. She thus far served as the solution to two problems: She gave Pinocchio life and freed him from the cage/sack he was so clearly trapped in. The movie does a good job of hiding it because the darkest story ever told by Disney is covered with darkness itself. It is not necessarily the act of sexual behaviors with children. Beautiful! Pinocchio’s adventures take him to all sorts of weird and wonderful places, from Pleasure Island to the Field of Miracles, but Collodi grounded the story in the Tuscan countryside where he lived. The way that scene played out was a clear indication of the power of the wealthy and what they do. Not in the conventional sense but lies nonetheless, lies in the sense that the Blue Fairy tells Pinocchio to prove himself in ways no other person in the movie could. He doesn’t really even understand right and wrong, that’s why Jiminy has to be assigned to him. In the 1940 film, ill-behaved boys are sent to Pleasure Island and turned into donkeys. These donkeys were then stripped of their former clothing by the Coachman and placed into crates where they would eventually be sold to the salt mines, the circus and other places. In the original Italian story of Pinocchio, Pleasure Island was called Toyland ("Il Paese del Balocchi"), but in an early English translation it was mistakenly translated as "Boobieland". When I was little this movie I always blamed Gepetto for not going back and saving all the other boys who had been turned into donkeys. She did not do this in the first place because perhaps she knew he was gullible and foolhardy and might die before actually enjoying life. To see this, every last truth, lie, lesson, virtue and villain Pinocchio has to offer must be examined. which is also for adults, yet kids will enjoy too but in their own way- a much less understanding of why. Pinocchio is the only Disney movie to do this. Unfortunately, his nose starts growing as he continues to emphasize that he met two monsters. But take it from someone who loved Pinocchio as a child (and still do as an adult) you don’t catch these things. This scene, with its grey background and colored characters also marks the transition from bright colors earlier and simple problems to serious problems and dark demeanors. I have never evaluated the movie as an adult but I am not surprised that you’ve found some of the adult themes like human trafficking and pedophilia. The Blue Fairy gives Pinocchio what is basically to be seen as the model for a live human being, which is a lie. And she sets many things in motion, thankfully she is benevolent. That part really disturbed me when I was little, I refused to watch it for years and I’d run out of the room or hide under the covers whenever my siblings would put it on and that scene would come on, I’d also have recurring nightmares about being turned into a donkey and being shoved into a crate sometimes along with my siblings and cousins. You can hear it briefly in Tobacco Row sequence,in Pleasure Island. But either way it definitely is dark and scary as hell in a motivating way. By this point in Hunchback, a death has already happened. Otherwise, the truth the viewer must face is too terrible. I watched it recently and I forgot how dark it is! Yeah you can, everyone had to take responsibility for themselves and this is an archetype. I always wondered how I would have viewed the film as a child. Who among us has not forgotten our good values at time, and just decided to indulge? Even Hunchback had the decency to give a showy happy ending with singing and dancing for all of Paris after the fiery, infernal battle with Judge Claude Frollo. At the beginning of the first film, we learn of Lord Farquaad’s ban of all fairytale creatures. However I think there is something a lot darker about the older disneys snow white for example, you wouldn’t catch someone trying to stab someones heart nowadays in Disney! So Disney got better at it (you still have to watch em) and you the viewer are better for it. Lorenzini began his writing career in newspapers (Il Lampione and Il Fanfulla ), where he often used satire to express his political views. Is it impossible that seven angry dwarves can defeat an old witch who unfortunately lacks her usual Potions? In Mr Potter’s case he was a frail old man in decline health-wise and in his power over his town. I do remember feeling really disturbed by the Pleasure Island scene and the traumatic donkey phase. This is perhaps a real lie. Free booze, free smokes, free property destruction, free ice cream, a fight club, and any old thing a young juvenile delinquent might want, per 1940s movie standards. The Internet is a Golden Corral for these theories and we eat them up like it’s a weekday special. Among the places where the boys could misbehave were the Roughhouse, where they were encouraged to fight, the Model Home, which was open for vandalism and destruction, and food, alcohol and tobacco was made freely available. The Darker Corners of Pinocchio Not as welcoming as it looks. That part is really disturbing. I mean you really don’t see any of their films tackling the kind of stuff they did in the Night on Bald Mountain (Though Hunchback came pretty close.). Every character is a perfect rapresentation to show better the moral of the story. Some of the movies from childhood are actually terrifying to revisit.. Also, the evil influence of the island seems to wear off if the visitor is lucky enough to escape in time. Lastly, it’s important to note that neither Disney nor the protagonists kill the “villain” in films such as Snow White. I was always sensitive, and the thought of those boys, suddenly repentent and weeping “I want my momma!” just cut me to the heart. It was not directly dealt with but implicit messages rarely are. Honest John tricks Pinocchio… twice, Stromboli imprisons Pinoke, and The Coachman transforms boys into donkeys and sells them. No dark messages or meanings. Now everything makes sense. And what he did is pretty terrible and tragic. We do not know what happens to them. You need the maturity and wisdom that come with age to be able to safely do all of those things, to gamble without being an addict, to drink without being an alcoholic, or… to have sex without being coerced. Also, I believe Pinocchio’s task is not just impossible because he is asked to do what other people can do – he is asked to do it without actually having a real conscience. Yet the discussion was stifled because nobody could articulate quite why they had such dramatic reactions. Yes, but see I’m speaking mainly about Disney films. I never noticed the dark elements depicted in the film, but I’m glad you pointed them out! Pinocchio says he did not escape, which is the complete truth when related to the previous ‘lie’ but he was chopped into firewood. Exactly my point. I mean I sort of get what you mean, but it’s not completely accurate. Insightful, super analysis taking into account phenomena in the world. But behind the explicit meaning is yet another meaning. Enter: The Blue Fairy for the second time. The series Giannettino, for example, often referred to the unificatio… The rest… they are put to work like slaves and those who have even the capability to protest the conditions they are put in are silenced. But … Some of the donkeys did not immediately lose their human voices, and were placed in a pen by the Coachman - what happened to them next was unclear, although presumably they were either kept there until they finally lost their ability to talk, killed by the Coachman, or were used to pull his stagecoach. It’s funny how that’s where he drew the line when so many other Disney films have equally dark elements. Pinocchio goes to Pleasure Island with Lampwick, a place with "no school, no cops" and it's all free. NOW I get it. Therefore, as TVtropes.org points out, a Pleasure Island donkey could show up, as well. Netflix’s The White Tiger Trailer: Create Your Own Fate, The Complex Lessons of Environmentally-Motivated Animation, Samurai Jack: Exploring the Newfound Maturity. Who could be called by some as the most truly evil Disney villain who caused massive and unrepaired damage got away with it. One is explicit and means that that they leave and when they come back, they are donkeys incapable of speech. I watched this movie as a kid and watched it again today, many years later as an adult with my own child. She isn’t bringing him back to life but rather rewarding him with life. The island delivers on Honest John’s promise – it is a dazzling array of some of the most sophisticated and ambitious attractions ever to grace the Earth. They’re portrayed as bad things to do and if anything influenced me to be a good boy myself, lol. I didnt like too much this movie, nor dumbo. Is it impossible that a street rat can trick a mad sorcerer into becoming a genie by taking advantage of his pride? sorry for my grammatical errors. There are stories about a deleted scene in which Honest John and Gideon meet Pinocchio for a third time but are arrested. there is way more symbolism and foreshadowing in these classics than we ever knew, making them very similar to George Orwell’s (animated) Animal Farm.. lol. When he says that he was put in a sack, rather than a cage, he once again loses responsibility because his sight is impaired. Thank you, really! Screenfice covers the latest Film & TV news. You fall into a roller coaster car, and it's pretty obvious that there should be a LOT more safety features. And honestly, the fates of those kids disturbed me even as a child but it was not until I became an adult when I realized how dire things were really were for them. They will take everything you cherish and rip it apart. He’ll even lock away people he knows aren’t really “crazy” for money (and he “loves it”). It is never explicitly stated it was in fact her but it can be no one else. And their family cannot protect them anymore because they willingly rejected that protection. There is nothing wrong with Disney’s optimism and idealism in other films. And Disney is trying to teach little boys (and girls) the lesson of life AND TAKING RESPONSIBILITY for your own actions and not blame others, but be accountable. The first glimpse of Pleasure Island is maddening. In the 1940 animated adaptation Disney visualised this marvellous, shimmering carnival of hedonism as a theme park called Pleasure Island, which was the setting for some of … Interesting. Of course, maybe “stay away from evil or face consequences” was really disney’s intention at that time and context, but NOWADAYS can we really say that? An argument can be made that there is no villain in that movie though. I never saw any such ending. There was many villains in Dumbo. Perhaps Jiminy was wrong. You’ve given me quite a lot to think about! I played a spooky clown at Pleasure Island) and having read the original Collodi tale. Nice Work! Powerful and revelatory excavation into the depth of the human condition, as only a master story teller could reveal guised as a fairytale. Of course, it’s not the only film but it is the only Disney film to do so. That movie, for its lesson, tells a whole pack of truths to an extent it hurts. She is the solution to all problems presented: lifeless puppet, overgrown nose, locked cage, man-eating whale, or death. He uses that rather underhanded tactic to try and ruin George Bailey, and in the end, it is the good will that George has showered on his family and friends that saves the day. No human in the movie acts like this so it must be assumed that the Blue Fairy wants Pinocchio to be that model. Earlier, he insisted there was no risk in illegally trafficking children to an island cut off from civilization because…. YeremyV expands on this idea, adding that most of the other characters in “Shrek” seem to be from fairy tales or nursery rhymes (Three Little Pigs, Three Blind Mice, Muffin Man), but … Pinocchio insists he was not afraid but he was tied in a sack. And it was kind of funny/lazy how a magical bird just sent a note to Pinocchio to tell him that Gepetto was swallowed by a whale, ha. Pinocchio smiled as he watched the sun rise over Pleasure Island. Killed. That makes no sense. though I haven’t seen atlantis. The lesson is that lying cannot protect you, and Pinocchio is destined to endure more dire situations when this becomes apparent. Pinocchio is a film that does stuff Disney never does. Another important thing to add is The Blue fairy in Pinocchio is teaching him the lesson of life. He offers gold to his pawns who now seem completely terrified of him as he whispers his plan to traffic the kids off to a nice little place called Pleasure Island. I had to get online and check if anyone else felt it was inappropriate and hinted at child sex trafficking. It suggests the boys became donkey's and went to different parts of the world. I found it utterly disturbing, but still love it. Quick summary: Pinocchio is lured by the bad foxes, gets sold to a guy in entertainment biz, he escapes, lured by foxes again, then sold to a guy who is going to take him to "pleasure island" (yes, that's the real name of island in movie). People do not listen to their conscience, the vast majority of humans in the movie are terrible, even kids Pinocchio’s own age go astray, and Pinocchio is nonetheless asked to become the lone light in a sea of darkness. I hated this movie as a kid. He convinces him he is ill and tells him to take some time off at Pleasure Island. Once again, Honest John lures Pinocchio into his clutches under even more false pretenses. Pinocchio could’ve easily went to school and still face many challenges. Pinocchio was trapped, tripped, sent to the theater, used, abused, and locked up. As the movie portrays it as a lie, here again is the second lie told by either the movie or Pinocchio himself, depending on how it is spun. As for the ones who could still talk, I had thought- although I could be wrong- that he was just holding them there until they, too, lost their ability to speak. At the world premiere of the YTP, Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor are in the audience. so be wise, listen to your conscience. Approaching the island via a man-made tunnel that must have taken an untold amount of time and money to construct, the ship finally reaches its destination, Pleasure Island. The Coachmanis the owner of the island and takes all the bad boys collected by himself (or others he hires for the job) from various towns and villages to the island. In Pinocchio, boys go to Pleasure Island and can do whatever they like. It is a brutally honest scene and I have never revisited the movie since. After Pinocchio escapes from Stromboli's puppet show even, though Stromboli kept him under a contract he signed, he boards a stagecoach full of boys to Pleasure Island. Turns out I’m not crazy. I guess as a kid I wouldn’t catch the almost blatant meaning, but I am amazed that this scene is in a child’s movie. Was Honest John not a monster? I did not know about Jews then, but I know now. Even though the Von Trapp family escape Occupied Austria, Herr Zeller is still maintaining Nazi order in Occupied Austria and indoctrinating innocent Austrians into the Nazi cause. His growing nose makes it so that he cannot hide. Is it impossible that a Prince armed with a sword and shield and backed by three fairies can defeat a dragon? Pinocchio is the best example. The Blue Fairy. I cried– more than I did during any other Disney film–as a child, later as a teenager, and even now as an adult. Seeing a dark coat makes many think that there is no need to look behind something already so explicit. I think that’s a very important role that is required for this movie, the world is a tough place to live sometimes but all we can do is roll with the punches and make the best of it. Sure he distracts him a lot with his doctor game but in the end he holds him against his will more than once and when they take him away it’s not willingly. The Shredder has created a "pleasure island" to lure misguided teens into his Foot Clan. She decides that Gepetto deserves to have his wish granted, and gives Pinocchio the gift of life. I know it’s awful, but what can you do? I’m delighted to have found an article in which it’s writer agrees with my view of this movie. Along with Pinocchio, all the 'bad' kids are lured to the island. Can you draw any similar parallels. “A boy who won’t be good may just as well be made of wood.”. By the way, I love the social commentary connected to the boys/donkeys at the end. Anyway, I wish I’d had this analysis to give them a framework to understand what’s going on here! The threat to be made into firewood was certainly there. Interestingly enough, it was my brother who pointed the pedophilia thing out but it took much more expansion than the Pleasure Island thing. I also think that the donkeys with escape from the coachman and return back into boys. Not one of them sees any retribution. I also think it’s interesting that you bring up his death, although…. “Prove yourself brave, truthful and unselfish, and someday you will be a real boy.”, “And always let your conscience be your guide.”, And our favorite little cricket, Jiminy explains in eloquent words…, “that still small voice that people won’t listen. And behind these already dark explicit overtones the movie makes, it cleverly hides something darker, even for adults. Pinocchio tries to blame Honest John saying he kidnapped him, when really Honest John wasn’t a very bright guy himself thus couldn’t take advantage of Pinoke IF he would’ve just said “no, I’m going to school and that’s final now leave me alone.” Blue Fairy was simply saying do not lie, do not blame others for your actions and when you misbehave. Everyone else is miserable. There’s nobody here to stop you.”. But yes, in a way he did come of age. Its very possible I never got into smoking because of how haunting this movie is. In fact, it is a sort of truth. Pleasure Island is a theme park located on an island and is accessed there by ferry. In conclusion, this movie is a truly a fantastic, dark work of art. All that money they make is not successful?! When he starts jabbering about a boy made of wood and is now his son he’ll likely get thrown into an asylum and pinocchio will end up in a workhouse. Like Liked by 1 person. Must be analyzed much more than any other film. The Coachman may be got away unpunished,but after Pinocchio’s escape has probably interrupted his business on Pleasure Island. mirror the current President (not my president!) First of all, it has been a LOOONG time since I saw this movie because I really detested it. Those arent bad things (stay with me in this one), but things that you do when you are a grown up. he only had this short time to prove himself. I am very interested. It means a lot. Good essay, but I suggest you be more accurate when referring to things such as ‘pedophilia’. I never noticed them myself until the last time I watched it about 3-4 years ago. Pinocchio has every intention of going to school. One wonders how adults let children watch this movie? This, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Tarzan, and Atlantis are among Disney’s darkest films. Good stuff. He even gets rid of the ones who can talk, those who inexplicably still retain the power of speech such as Alexander, and only God knows what happens to them. (I’m sorry for my English LOL). I tried watching this movie as a teen, years ago. Films like Pinocchio and Snow White feature in my opinion a new testament concept of faith in which the protagonist is not burdened with the obligation to imprison kill or punish the antagonist, but solely to try and be good. Should Children’s Films be Dark or Light? Guests enter to find Pinocchio, holding the bloody and broken Blue Fairy in a closet, where she begs for mercy. In fact, he is well on his way until the first two villains we meet take him away and convince him to become an actor in the theater. He says; “They never come back as boys”. I’ve seen it for the first (and only) time at the age of 35, with my children, and I found it very dark and disturbing, perhaps more for the adults than for the children, and surely more than the original Italian novel (!) I think they will find a way home to there parents house. Though Disney’s version only tells some of his adventures I appreciate their trueness to the story. Pinocchio is the one and only exception. Basically, anything Jews come up with is designed to unseat order in the universe, from Pinocchio to compound interest and nuclear weapons. I’m French and in my country, everybody knows the tale of Pinocchio but quite few people have seen the Disney movie, I think it’s in part because of the date when the film was released (1940, a time when American films were banned in Axis-ruled countries, as France in this time), and because all that dark stuff inside the film. you know just like how kids do when they get in trouble they will try to blame their friend or the other guy, but they will learn quick they cannot do this and cannot snitch, for if they don’t learn to take responsibility as children they will have a hell of a time as adults. This is what leads us to the first lie of the movie and ironically it is not told by Pinocchio. Pleasure Island is an amusement park where kids can do whatever they want. So is it really right to say it was Pinocchio’s fault that he strayed towards “evil”? And in this film, the main characters prosper by way of goodness and faith. He is lured away by Mr. And let’s not forget certain portions of Fantasia. As you point out, many of the more recent films tie up all the loose ends or even offer perspectives that explain why “bad” behavior is a reaction to some other inequality (I’m thinking of Maleficent here). Gepetto is a weirdo and people probably know that. Looking forward to your reply! Pinocchio can live. This creation is a puppet he names Pinocchio. If you think acting is a foul career, than why the heck are you reviewing movies? That pedophile Coachman… *shudder*. Every time, even though I knew Pinocchio would escape because I watched it ten times, I prayed and prayed that Pinocchio would be ok. I could compare it with a (softer) scene of Dumbo, when the baby elephant becomes sick and delirious after drinking a bucket of champagne. This suggests he wasn't always a donkey. She is watching it for the first time. Pedophilia does tend to scar the victim for life. The one detail changed that is potentially creepier and more obscene than the original story is the renaming of Collodi’s Toyland as Pleasure Island. When the movie starts, it begins with the famous When you Wish Upon a Star sequence and skip to Gepetto finishing his latest wooden creation. Acting is not a distinguished career no matter how much press they get. I’ll need to read a review or something because what I liked about rthe villain was her theatrical villainy. Personally, I never thought much of Pinocchio, but perhaps if I saw it again I could somehow appreciate the dark parts for being faithful to the dark nature of classic children’s stories a la the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christen Anderson. 1 Screenshots 2 Pinocchio's Daring Journey 3 Concept Art 4 Miscellaneous 5 Video Games Add a photo to this gallery Add a photo to this gallery Add a photo to this gallery Add a photo to this gallery Add a photo to this gallery I really like your points on Pinocchio and the other boys being “scarred” by their experience and that means they become donkeys. I do think the Blue Fairy plays an important role here, she seems to be the mentor for Pinnochio. Pleasure Island was a cursed amusement park seen in Pinocchio.The park was owned and operated by The Coachman, who made a fortune from his crooked deeds, and is seen in the film when the Coachman brings Pinocchio, Lampwick and a coachload of other boys to the park. I have a real history with Pinocchio and I love the movie dearly. Yes, Frollo was sex-obsessed, but at least he was explicit about it. We don’t see him in the angry mob after Maurice’s sanity is proved, nor in the fleeing masses from the castle, so presumably he’s allowed to continue running his Asylum and persecuting/torturing “crazy” inmates to his heart’s content. She is the benevolent solution and in so doing, provided Pinocchio with the rebirth he needed (notice his donkey ears and tail are gone) and he is set to live happily ever after. Eh… if it is, it’s not part of the Disney movie. children and even teens are so naïve and oblivious to life in general, not to mention Disney movies. He wants to please her. That’s just the trouble with the world today.”. But yes, the pleasure island sequence has often stuck out in my mind. In Carl Hockley’s case, he survived the sinking of the Titanic by sneaking on board a life boat bound for New York. i’ll handle this myself!” again I think an important message to take responsibility and don’t tell on someone… I would love to hear your response to this. But your students were right about one thing. 39 thoughts on “ Disturbing Disney #2: The truth of Pleasure Island in Pinocchio (1940) ” movierob March 9, 2017 at 2:10 pm. I haven’t seen Pinocchio since I was probably 8 and I’m 37 now but it’s surprising how I instantly recollected the scenes you were describing. A few basics: never jump out of the car except at breaks in the track, always hold down to avoid the poles just above the track that knock you out of the car. Usually the bad guy always gets it in the end. It operates independently with the writers collaboratively building and maintaining the platform. These lines hold, from the beginning till the end as the most important and oft-spoken lines in the movie. “Smoke your heads off. Images and media related to Pleasure Island. This ties in with the point that Pinocchio is the sole light in a world of evil. He is also a pedophile. Including that Jiminy was caught too is his way of saying that his conscience was out of his reach–a way to completely avoid the blame that he anticipates from the Fairy. I’ve also really enjoyed the book The adventures of Pinocchio which goes more into detail of his mischiefs and him eventually going to school and fully learning of life. It certainly was not the entrapped Gepetto and the dove was glowing white which reminds us of a heavenly figure. wow wow wow. I would like an opinion, if it can be still be offered, on the following; I have read a synopsis of the original Pinocchio Adventures book and that version did not end well nor is Pinocchio ever redeemable or redeemed. There is a late radio-song of the movie called “Honest John”. Maybe the truth was stretched a little bit but by no means a complete lie. OMG I hated this book…It was just a little-kid creepy vibe… Never saw the movie…. that’s what I get for being sleep deprived. The movie tells the story of Pinocchio, a wooden puppet made by a man named Geppetto … Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. I watched this movie for the first time since my childhood and man, so many implicit dark meanings you only understand as an adult. I’ll be unhappy with Disney if he had actual death in mind here. Pinocchio is a 2019 Italian fantasy film, co-written and directed by Matteo Garrone, and based on the 1883 book The Adventures of Pinocchio by Italian author Carlo Collodi. There’s also a 1970 animated version which is really good. However, this is as far as she goes before laying the burden on Pinocchio to prove himself before being made of flesh and blood. Keeping him in the form of a wooden puppet, then, was a form of protection until he “came of age” as someone else said. I think what you actually mean is child molestation/forced sex work. Sure he doesn’t have to face a dragon but hey, at least Phillip was well equipped. The boy had literally no idea what a school was before he was being sent to one. Later, there are explicit messages dark enough for a child’s mind and darker for an adult’s mind. his voter base, his Administration, the Republican Congress and the, soon to swing radically to the right, SCOTUS. Also, as a child I was horrified of the donkey scene and it still til this day watching it years later meant a general visceral nightmare —painting a picture of a specific crime is outside the realm of what’s shown.
