Having seen this film once on television a few years back, I find it amazing that it isn't more easily available on video. The acting is engaging, the plot, while traditionally-inspired, is riveting, and the music is still memorable. Visually stunning, I would recommend you pore over the TV listings in your area for a late-night showing, and that you urge your local video store to move heaven and earth to get a copy. It is well worth it. (Note: Despite the German title, it's in English, or was dubbed very well in the version I saw).
