In a small pleasant European village, there is one unhappy person: Ella. She is despised by everyone, and mistreated by her stepmother and stepsisters. Out feeling miserable one day, Ella meets a handsome young man, who falls for her. He is really Prince Charles, the son of the Duke, but he tells her he is the son of the cook, and invites her to a great ball at the Duke's castle. A strange woman who lives in the mountains by herself befriends Ella, and dresses her up so she can attend the ball. She goes, and is a great success, but must run out at midnight.

i first saw this movie on late night family channel as a kid... it tooks me years to find it again, when i FINALY found it i ran out and bought it(2 months on back order!!) this is such a sweet light hearted cinderella tale of a girl named Ella who always told everyone she would grow up to live in the palace... and people just shrugged her off and called her "cinder-ella" because of cleaning out the fireplace and being covered in ashes... a fairy godmother who is accentric and amusing with word games what holds a good message, there are some key moments what always make me laugh every time i watch it... this is the first leslie caron movie i saw and i fell inlove with her and have now seen many more of her movies... she is a very beautiful woman with great skill and always reminds me a bit of Audrey Hepburn(maybe it's just me)...whenever i'm down this movie always makes me smile i can never get bored of it!... if you love light hearted romance comedies or the classics this movie is worth watching!
