The best fairytale film
5 January 2007 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

There are only four movies which I rated 10/10 so far. This one deserves it for many reasons. Great acting, beautiful costumes, hilarious dialogues... Some of the dialogues have become so popular that they get quoted in everyday speech.

Josef Kemr is great as the weakling duke, Petr Narozny as the sadistic Corporal, Ondrej Vetchy as the feckless Devil, Karel Hermanek as the manic Lucipher :) tell me of another Czech movie with so many good actors.

If the definition of a 'cult film' is "a film that dedicated fans can watch over and over again", then this is definitely a cult film.

I can think of only two other fairy tales that rank somewhere near this one: "Andel Pane" and "Tri Veterani".
