This film has beautiful scenery and a story of an evil ruler and his dwarf son. It is so interesting because it is not told from a Hollywood style point of view. It is hard to explain except that the dwarf son doesn't want to marry the most beautiful girl in the village...he wants to marry her mother! But she's already married. So the ruler must get rid of her husband by banishing him. Then the ruler wants to marry the daughter, that he originally wanted for his son. The husband of the woman gets an army of others to try to topple the evil tyrant. Interesting..... a great film for the production location, the manner in which the story is told, etc. (Hollywood would have jammed it with a loud booming soundtrack, and had more blood and violence.) Rent it. You won't be sorry. But you may have to watch it twice to catch everything.
