Storyline

A wonderful fairy tale of the misadventures of a beautiful but temperamental Neapolitan peasant, Isabella, when she meets the ill- tempered Spanish Prince Rodrigo Ferrante y Davalos. The King of Spain has ordered Rodrigo to choose a wife among seven Italian Princesses, but he is smitten by the lowly peasant. With the help of both witches and saints, Isabella conquers the heart of her Prince after many amusing events--including an outrageous dishwashing contest of the peasant against the Princesses.

nice fairy tale
15 February 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it is not a blockbuster or an art film. it is not the best film of lead actors filmography. but it is romantic, amusing, funny , nice, ironic. a fairy tale from fairy tale old fashion books. and that is all. the eroticism of Sophia Loren - model for feminist tendency -, the charm of Omar Shariff ,a new meeting with legendary Dolores del Rio or presence of an original Catholic saint are perfect pillars for nostalgic memories and pure delight discovering an easy film about prediction, spell, love and adventures, choices, adventures and victory of truth. confuse in few parts, it is far to be serious. because it has all seduction of childhood and youth seduction. and because it is work of a smart, inspired team who gives to a little joke all force of a great movie.
