A most delightful low-tech cinematic experiment that was probably made for 1.99 Euro. The language of the film, the theatrical dialog delivery, and the baroque music score hark back to the Age of Chivalry, but the characters wear jeans and refer to modern-day inventions in their conversation (to very funny effect, I must add). Damsels in distress, dashing knights, an evil child-devouring ogre and his kindly wife, two children in danger of becoming the ogre's dinner--the film had them all, with nary a trace of special effects. It relied on good old-fashioned story telling, wit, imagination, and the suspension of disbelief on the part of the viewer. A must-see.
