Storyline

The powerful evil wizard Tarabas gets knowledge about a prophecy that a king's child will defeat him. So he sends out his army of dead soldiers to kidnap all royal children. When the soldiers attack Fantaghiro's castle to steal the babies of her sisters the battle seems to be lost until she discovers that water turns the unvulnerable soldiers into stone. Romualdo leads the aggressors to a near river and destroys one after the other until he finally falls into the river himself and is turned into stone by the poisoned water. Because nobody is able to revive him Fantaghiro decides to search for Tarabas to force him to help her. Written by Matthias Scheler <tron@lyssa.owl.de>

The best part of the Cave of the Golden Rose series
21 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

I loved all of the Cave of the Golden Rose series but the fourth part is my favorite because of the introduction of Tarabas' character.

My comment concerns all 4 films: beautiful, breathtaking photography, original and creative plot, excellent cast (especially Alessandra, Nicholas, and Bridget Nielson!), moving music, great script with parts that make you want to reach for that tissue box no matter how old you are, appealing soundtrack...etc.. But what is most striking is that, for once, it is the princess who journeys to save the prince, and NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND!

Too bad The Cave of the Golden Rose didn't get the recognition it surely deserved. Maybe it's because it's not an american production. That said, the dubbing wasn't always good!
