In a magical world, small but brave Tom Little embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to release the kingdom from a spell and win the hand of a beautiful princess. But who is his true love: the king's daughter or the courageous thief?
Typical subsidised French movie. The premise was enough for the whole thing to get the green-light, but it's really a flimsy story. Of course that means we had an untalented director attached very early in development (it takes a lot of duds in France for untalented people to be phased out of film production) so, to put it more kindly, with a director who only delivered widely unimpressive flicks in the past no wonder the whole movie flies below the radar of quality. Yuck, it's a stealth movie designed to nose-dive into oblivion.
Too bad for the leads, Clovis Cornillac and Marie-Josée Croze are both talented and they do quite well with one-dimensional characters who are overwhelmingly passive, at a loss and irresolute for most of the movie. Who could then turn a vaguely good premise into gold, or bronze yet, with only a handful of rusty nails? It's really sad to see a whole feature budget swallowed by something which barely looks like a mediocre TV movie.
