Limp Russian fairytale
25 February 2002 | by (Cambridge, England) – See all my reviews

A film based on a variant of the fable of the beauty and the beast, it never really grips the imagination, with weak use of special effects and lame characterisations.

The colour is poor and the sense of being in the depths of the forest, prey to spirits and magic spells, is never really captured.
