Simply the best :)
29 January 2003 | by (Milan, Italy) – See all my reviews

I'm from Milan and I saw the five episodes (in Italy Fantaghirò is divided in 5 movies) of this beautiful film at least ten times. It's so simple, but even so touching... It's a mix of romance and fantasy that only this director can make up! Great actors for great characters: if you want to see the most romantic-fantastic story ever played, well you MUST watch this creation!
