This is "Rapunzel" and most people who know the name will immediately know the character in the title as well and perhaps also her story. Germany produced many fairy-tale films in the last years and this is one of them. It runs for slightly under an hour as most of them do and the director is Bodo Fürneisenl, who has also worked on other fairy-tale films. It is live action and this take on Rapunzel came out slightly before the famous Oscar-nominated animated film from 2010. While I would not say that Luisa Wietzorek, I still recognized that these fairy-tale movies usually have more big names than this one here. The only known names are Suzanne von Borsody who plays the main antagonist and maybe Boris Aljinovic. Piet Klocke, who I really love, is in it too, but has almost no screen-time unfortunately. It was strange seeing him without his glasses, but otherwise the character fit him nicely. I think they messed up a bit on the story here and this is one of my least favorites from these German fairy-tale films I have seen so far. Costumes and sets are all fine, but story-wise I just wasn't impressed and I think that without the famous Brothers Grimm who write this one of course, the movie would have been completely irrelevant. maybe at times, it also tries to be way too much for its own good. Quite a shame, Rapunzel is such a great character and she certainly deserves more than we have here. I don't recommend the watch. Thumbs-down.
