If you think there is no fun in the burning hell, you are wrong
The unusually enjoyable story (about a pauper messing with devils) seems to be located somewhere in late baroque times and it's not just a particular love story. It's very funny indeed, but also deeper thoughts can be revealed behind the lines. The creators keep questioning about the power of money. And the human society is sometimes more evil then the Hell itself. But don't worry, you don't have to think about the hidden meanings if you don't want to this film was made mainly for entertainment.
The creators also designed a completely new view at the hell, its rules and its hierarchy. The conception of the love story is unusual as well. How many fairly tales with a love-triangle do you know? If you are expecting more than just an ordinary tale, you want to have fun and maybe something more, you are at the right address.
I don't like giving 1 or 10 stars, but this particular piece deserves 10, no question about it.
