Young prince sets out (somewhat unwillingly) on a quest to find the evil wizard Mrakomor who is holding captive the beautiful Vecernice (Evening Star).
5 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
