Did You Know?

Playwright and screenwriter Frantisek Pavlícek was blacklisted by totalitarian regime in Czechoslovakia at the time. In the credits is therefore given name of Bohumila Zelenková. During the production, only Zelenková, director Václav Vorlícek and Barrandov Studios' executive Ota Hofman knew who the real author of the screenplay is.See more »

Too good to be true, 18 March 1999
Author: elfqueen from Glasgow, Scotland

Most of what I feel about this film has already been said: it is a must at Christmas, it is modern, feminist, strong, well thought-out, beautiful, funny, sweet, charming, has a great soundtrack, lovely people, has the right amount of emotions, is playful, one for the children and grown-ups alike. The only problem with it is that it seems virtually unknown in Scotland and it saddens me to think that so many British children might never know the joys of this piece of total magic. It should be compulsory.
