Retrospektive 2013

Playing with gender stereotypes is a main part of the humor in the movies with Jerry Lewis. Cinderfella pushes the cross-gender to parody-perfection, male fairy godmothers included, and also brings pretty much every value from the fairytale out what the modern film machinery could ever bear. And in a casual way the core of the story negotiates a typical Lewis-istic question of the relationships between the "little ones", the modest and the "Great" and powerful; or, in Fellas words, between "people" and "persons"
