A wonderful film
24 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ms Lee really attempted to do a version of the Tales that would merit some consideration. Frankly when one considers the budget restraints this is quite a remarkable achievement.

Some scenes go on for too long and others are far too short, e.g Colleen Brennan's scene with Hyapatia is scorchingly hot and yet much too short for full expression of mood.

The sets and the costumes are pretty well done for a low budget film and there is some nice writing involved also.

This is a very cute film and if one comes to it with an open mind and heart one should be well rewarded.

I just adore this film.
