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

Magical and Cute
7 November 2001 | by (Edmonds, WA, USA) – See all my reviews

What a fabulous idea! I would sit through hundreds of these stories to avoid sitting through another bad kid movie. This film was pleasing for everyone, kids and adults. The stories connect with each other, have cute morals, and cool animation. Although everything is silhouette, like shadow puppets, the creatures soon form faces in your mind. You get used to it. Everyone should have a chance to see this movie, catch it if you can. My favorite story was the last one, about what happens when a prince and a princess keep kissing. The one with the fig for Egyptian Goddess was good too.
