Race against Time. / Ada Krupińska

Alice (Mia Wasikowska) made her dream come true: she became a ship captain. In the first scene of "Through the looking glass" we're accompying her in escaping from pirates and - that's the suprise - acrobatic performances are taking place in real world, not in Wonderland. Her rigid attitude and special achievements, fill watchers with admiration but I think that we can expect everything of a person who never says "it's impossible". In "Through the looking glass", Alice will use this phrase just the once and after a while, she will regret it.

This time Alice come back to Wonderland mainly to help Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), who is submerged in deppresion. He is deeply experiencing loss of his family and still hopes that they can be saved. However, the thing looks terrible - even Alice knows that dead can not be revived. But the view of her beloved - fading away friend, who is rapted in deathful despair, makes her do something which she thought is impossible. Believing finding the Hatter's family is the only way to stop his deteriorating health, the White Queen (Anne Hathaway) decides for Alice to consult Time (Sacha Baron Cohen) himself, and convince him to have her save the Hatter's family in the past (Something that no Underland resident can do as it is said that history will be destroyed if someone sees their past/future self, while Alice has no past self in Underland for her to accidentally meet). Upon visiting Time's palace, Alice finds the Chronosphere, an object that powers all time in Underland and can travel through Time itself. After being told by Time that altering the past cannot be done, Alice steals the Chronosphere and travel back in time

In the sequel, all of the characters from "Alice in Wonderland" are back, but I should be honest that their time on the screen wasn't divided fair. In my opinion, there should be more scenes with the White Queen, Absolem, Chesire Cat, White Rabbit and the rest of funny crowd. Although I'm happy to see definetly more scenes with the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter), than in the first part. What I like the most is that this time she isn't portrayed like a total villain. We can finally get to know why she has such a big head!


"Through the looking glass" still belongs to Alice - her ministrations, in one world as well as in the second world, stake out most of the place. In real world she copes with unfettered, striking misogynism, and in the magic world - she discovers the core of family ties. If meeting with your favourite characters itself, will turn out to be not enough satisfyng in some respects, there are also: marked feministic message about not pulling back dreams against reversals and lesson about family love and forgiving. This will be enough for spectators enamoured in magic.
