My bosom! What happened to my bosom?
We don't have enough dust to restore all of it. We could make it a little smaller.

The best part of the Cave of the Golden Rose series
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!
