A ladder that’s not long enough. So there’s this whole strange business in the book and the film about their inability to draw a long ladder. Did you notice this, Ren? Ren: Which leads to some very strange sets, the room filled with all these bizarrely proportioned objects. Quite a lot of it is about her frustration at not being able to get out of bed, and her being grumpy and upset about having to spend this time in bed, and how she feels about the people around her and things like that. Adam: Yeah, the walls look really like they’ve got mildewed, and rotten and slimy and stinky. So what was your other (half-singing) Texture of the Week?

Adam: No, not as a child. But I really can’t remember at all how I came across it. I may have looked up: ‘if you liked Return to Oz you’ll like this’ kind of list.

Ren: So, in the film right at the beginning where Anna’s drawing, there’s some very ominous music happening to let you know that this is not going to go particularly well. But shall we talk about when it starts to get actually creepy. It doesn’t take all that long. Adam: I like how they’re established as obviously dangerous, but we don’t really see how they would kill anyone. But it would probably be horrible. There’s a bit later on where they mangle the bicycle, and we don’t know how they mangle the bicycle — Adam: So in the book it’s a pretty strained relationship for most of the book, by the end they’re friends, but — Adam: It reminded me of rewatching Big with my sister, the Tom Hanks film in which he’s young and in the body of a boy, and there’s a whole relationship scene where me and my sister were going ‘Oh ho ho, wouldn’t it be awful if something actually romantic happened’, and it does, and we were both quite horrified.

About Catherine Storr

a b Eccleshare (2005) gives the date of her death as 8 January; Eccleshare (2001) and Thwaite (2001) give it as 6 January. It's not just the stones that make the story so unusual, it is also the fact that it is about two children who are ill in bed and are trapped by their circumstance, finding a way of escaping through dreams. For a child, being confined to bed rest is so restrictive and feels never ending. This series captures that feeling perfectly. One of the things that children will think about when watching this is how to cope if the ability to walk is taken away, really mixing up the emotions.

Film critic Roger Ebert gave Paperhouse four stars out of four and called it "a film in which every image has been distilled to the point of almost frightening simplicity" and ended by saying "this is not a movie to be measured and weighed and plumbed, but to be surrendered to." [3] Their every movement is guarded by these menacing watchers that surround the solitary house. Together, in their dreams, Marianne and Mark must escape and save themselves.The film was made available on DVD on 24 September 2001 via Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment in its original widescreen aspect ratio of 1.66:1. [6] Lionsgate Home Entertainment released a re-issue of the film to DVD on 24 September 2007. [7] Adam: The father is almost notably absent, I’d say, in Marianne Dreams. He’s mentioned maybe twice, but very much isn’t present, interestingly. So I thought that the film maybe reflected that by having the father not present, and being away for his work.
