Storyline

Henriette is a princess; she is playing with her ball, but drops it into a well. A talking frog replaces it with a golden ball, on condition that he can eat and drink with her, and rest in her bed. She accepts, but then is repelled at the thought of the frog eating and drinking with her, etc, but her Father makes her do so. In her bedroom, the frog turns into a handsome prince, and she falls in love with him, but he leaves immediately becasue of her broken promises. She pines and eventually seeks him out, braving various tests of her truthfulness in the process. Written by Hazel Freeman <hazel@tguk.net>

CHILDREN'S FILM OF HIGH STANDARD
16 August 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Irresistible and appealing Jana Mattakut (as Princess Henriette) carries this East-German children's film, another good example of the high standards of the genre as it was produced by the DEFA. There are nice special effects when she meets natural phenomena like water, wind and fire. And I could not get enough of the castle of the Frog King that is designed in a "M.C. Escher like" style with its bridges and numerous stairways that go up and down and never seem to lead anywhere.

Recommended for people of every age. And remember: never throw a frog against a wall!
