A triumph of life?
2 December 2004 | by (Somewhere on a rainy island) – See all my reviews

This is a very bizarre fairy tale. It commences with a wedding and singing and dancing but nearly the whole village is wiped out by wolves. The bride gives birth to a daughter several months later and promises her to the boy who saved her.

Ten years later there is another disruption when Some circus folk come by and the villagers trick them into staying. Tragedy ensues...

This has a strange cast, dwarfs, giants, priests and occasional intrusions from the modern world in the form of the police and a wonderer who returns bringing to the village the good news of Nostradamus. It is a long film but it honestly does not drag. and if you get bored of the plot you can always look at the sumptuous Countryside.
