The old King (Vladimír Mensík) is not satisfied with his four children. It is high time for the Princesses to get married and for the Prince to assume the reign. Once the King sets out to the fowling and he entrusts the kingdom to the Prince Velen (Juraj Durdiak). His sisters want him to provide them with the bridegrooms. A beautiful girl Evening Star (Libuse Safránková) appears to Velen and he falls in love with her at once. Evening Star also likes Velen and therefore, for a kiss, she helps him to get married his sisters to her brothers Moonbeam, Sunbeam and Wind. After the King returns home he does not find the daughters because the bridegrooms took them right away. The angry King assigns the Prince to bring them home. Written by
Young prince sets out (somewhat unwillingly) on a quest to find the evil wizard Mrakomor who is holding captive the beautiful Vecernice (Evening Star).
A wonderful fairytale about looking for love, defeating evil and learning some valuable moral lessons on the way. The story begins with the young Prince, who is left in charge of the castle and his three sisters. During the night he has a visitation and before he knows it, all his sisters are married off and gone away, and the Prince is faced with the King's wraths and charged with a quest. Although the special effects may seem a bit dated, they in no way detract from the enjoyment of this movie. It is full of humor and more dramatic than the very popular and lovely Three Wishes for Cinderella. (The beautiful Czech actress Libuse Safrankova is in both movies.) I love this movie. I wish it were available in the US.
