hello everyone! i am writing from Austria! i just felt i HAVE TO write a comment!
you all know the story itself: the princess is playing with her little lucky golden ball, but she loses it and - surprise - it's the frog who brings it back to her. then, everyone is happy and the two of them fall in love with each other.
and now let me tell you a little story... :) when i was little, i had a video cassette of this film and i watched it over and over again, it must have been more than a thousand times! but my cassette disappeared sometime... some months ago i came across the DVD on "amazon.de" and of course i immediately bought it. this movie has had an enormous impact on me and my personality. when i watched it again after about 10 years or so, i started to cry because it is so touching! I could remember so many details of the story, so many melodies of those wonderful songs. suddenly i remembered how i loved to look at Zora's breathtaking dress and how scared i was of the "wood of the black heart". i really love the music, the plot and also the actors. it's a pleasure watching it! i find it kind of sad that this movie is so unpopular! i mean, even Helen hunt is playing a part in it. but i heard it has never been in the movies, you could only buy it on cassette. thank god it is available also on DVD now. it's simply perfect!
