Storyline

In this variation on Cinderella, Margarethe Fisher Van Den Meer is a former lady of means who had to accept a position as housekeeper, but manages to spike her Master Schoenmacker's drink and marry him; alas his shipment of priceless tulips turns worthless overnight, so their last chance is to marry of one of either's daughters, hopefully to the prince for whom the Dowager Queen Maria de Medici throws a great ball. Both Iris Fisher -who is in love with painter Casper for whose master she sat as a model- and Clara Van Den Meer make a good impression... Written by KGF Vissers

a more realistic (but still cute) version of Cinderella
2 October 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Spwysteve: But what was the confessions of the ugly stepsister? And who was the ugly stepsister? Why wasn't this called Confessions of an Ugly Stepmother?

-----------

Iris was the "ugly stepsister". This film shows a more realistic and complex version of the fairy tale, while it still mainly follows the original plot. You don't watch the movie, thinking it's exactly the same as the fairy tale, and then be disappointed its not. I think the movie was very cute, and more realistic than the fairy tale. I loved the role of casper.
