Suggestive tale of two infants whose love won against death. Great music and lots of psychedelic effects.
20 September 2009 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

Poor shepard Kukorica Jancsi (Johnny Corn) loves Iluska. Iluska's evil stepmother hates both of them and make Iluska's life hell. Jancsi lost his sheeps during kissing Iluska and his landlord chases him. He meets goons then he is recruited soldier. As soldier he saves the french king's daughter. He gets treasures and goes back to his village. He founded Iluska dead. In the cemetery Iluska's flower shows the way to Fairy Land. On his way he challenges the giant's king and won. The giants become his servants and help him across the never ending see to Fairy Island. Then he kills the fire dragon and find Iluska as queen of the Fairy Land. He changes to fairy and rules with Iluska on his side. The evil witch face in the moon which chases him constantly appears 15 year later in David Lynch's "Wild at heart" movie. The movie is full of unusual viewpoints and has psychedelic features in its music and vision.
