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

Very nice
29 April 2002 | by (Cape Town, South Africa) – See all my reviews

I trully enjoyed this adaptation. What a refreshing look at something that has been done to death! I though the leading lady was perfect, and just what the character called for. Azura Skye is no beauty, but as the script says, she has a face that makes you look, and then look again.

Told from the view of the "Ugly" Stepsister Iris, we are asked to indulge in the probability that Cinderella was a little brat and not the innocent she was always assumed to be. Nice comic relief, coupled with a good script, strong story and decent actors.

A must see for any romantic! Oooh, and check out the young painting assistant/love interest to Iris, Casper, played by the very yummy Matthew Goode. A good relaxing, no demands kinda movie. The only Cinderella story that rivals it, and wins, is ever after!
