And so this one also is a true masterpiece, if you're into fairy tales. Always interesting to see, that in spite of the GDR's (German Democratic Republic - the communist block's half of Germany) obvious disapproval of anything royal, they'd always put a lot of love into the creation of those fun-for-the-whole-family-movies. Maybe because their messages were so morally approvable. But since this morality is pretty much universal, those movies also can be appreciated all over the world.
The story is quite simple: Young princess gets betrayed, betrayal gets uncovered, true love wins, prince and princess get married, inherit the kingdom and live happily ever after as wise rulers.
