A nice fairy tale...
29 October 2001 | by Jaap_ZuurkoolSee all my reviews

In this wonderful 'slapstick' the main characters are all under the age of ten. I think their performance is very good. It has nice special effects and of course a nice story. I saw the German/French version on 'Arte' which was OK despite of the alteration of the introduction and credit titles.
