fairy tale with a deep truth
13 November 2008 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

this is a timeless film and a timeless story, full of hope and humanity. the actors are magnificent, especially the children and the storyteller.

altogether a beautiful experience that instills hope in everyone. in a way it is very realistic and based in a seemingly real village. then the film shifts between two stories which are linked and share some actors.

it is encouraging because it exposes evil-doers and gives hope that ethical behavior has still a great value. another plus is that the film shows a life-style of old with beautiful costumes and embellishing of the women's face and is set in a rural place which makes you quite nostalgic.
