a movie i never quite forgot about
29 April 2002 | by sweetrupturedlightSee all my reviews

i saw this movie when i was about 15, in that romantic, impressionable age. i loved it and dreamed about the beautiful princess and the handsome prince Viktor. In retrospect, i have to say that at the age of 19 i can see that the movie was definitely a far cry from cinematic brilliance! A movie that will never have won any oscars or gained recognition for anything.

The plot was your usual girl losing her way and the white night making sacrifices to be with the fair maiden. Not riveting stuff, but i will remember this movie for a long time yet. Never ever heard of Joel Beeson again, i suppose he was only good to look at.

If this one ever comes your way, catch a peek. i can't promise the memorable experience i had, but you may just slip back into the fantasy of it all.
