All time classic for (not only) kids
24 December 2007 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

If you live anywhere else but in Czech republic, you probably don't know much about this movie. But if you do, this is something like Wizard of Oz for Americans. Great acting, nostalgia, classic fairytale

  • each year's Xmas favorite. Loved by generations.


Princess Lada, with her golden star on the forehead, should become married. However, she doesn't like her wannabe-husband. And neither does anyone else - because it is evil king Kazisvět (Destroyer). He has fulfilled all the seemingly impossible tasks to deserve her, now he threatens her country with the war, if she does not marry him. The wise nanny cannot bear watching her suffer, and helps her to escape. Princess Lada travels around, dressed in the mice fur coat with big cape - just to avoid to be recognized for her golden hair and golden star. She comes to sunny kingdom of prince Radovan, and becomes cookie in the castle kitchen. She wears his mice fur all the time, so no one could recognize her. Once she secretly goes to the ball, where prince is supposed to choose her future wife. He turns down several offers, but falls in love with the mysterious lady that no one knows - its her, of course. They exchange rings, but Lada escapes him and hides again in the kitchen. Once the breakfast is prepared and she accidentally drops the ring to the soup. King calls whole kitchen staff to his mansions and recognizes Lada almost immediately. He proposes her, but she refuses sadly, saying she is supposed to marry king Destroyer. As it happens, King Destroyer is being announced entering. He threatens Radovan with war, if he does not surrender Lada. She comes to him, dressed in her mice furs, and he refuses to admit that he knows her. Then Radovan takes off her coat and everyone recognizes her immediately. Radovan then forces Destroyer out of the country, old cook is excused for treating her like cookie, and gets his medal for being great servant. Of course, happy end follows... Lada and Radovan got married and probably still live happy.
