It have beautiful colors and nice costumes. I am quite sure children will enjoy it a lot. It is the classical Cindarella story just with some crazy twists.
But for me it was just too silly. It seemed a bit like a cartoon just with human actors. It is really magnificent colors and costumes. But all the characters are overplayed too much. Especially the king is too much overplayed and seem like a raving madman. That can have political reasons for the time but for me it just seems plain stupid.
Normally I love fantasy and also cartoons, but I simply cannot recommend this unless for a family movie with children.
