Storyline

A group of animators are in their study trying to make a shadow puppet show with fables from different historical periods and come up with six sweet and naughty fairy-tales: The princess of Diamonds, the Boy and the Fig Tree, The witch, The Old Lady's Cape, The Crunch Queen and the Fabulo, and Prince and Princess. All the stories have a moral message but they are not as traditional as it might be thought. Written by GitanillaOZ

Surprisingly original
22 June 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

When you watch an animation you usually don't expect such a thing as "Princes et Princesses". Basically this movie is a collection of tiny animations (six in total) whose plots align to those of ancient tales. So we're presented with several "topoi" (mainly involving princes and princesses), as well as cultural settings (ancient Egypt and Japan to name two). In the end, it is just like a transposition/adaption of good stories written in the past, all packed in one robust animation.

The overall idea being good, drawings look simple but original, and you may even say that a new style of making animations began with the assembling of this movie.

This is also going to be a great view for your kids, in case you have any.
