Storyline

Aging master gemcutter Prokopych is forced to take up a young apprentice against his will. He chooses young daredevil Danilo, who seems to have only one practical talent - the one for gemcutting. In time he becomes obsessed with his job and eventually outdoes even Prokopych. Prokopych's landlord orders the two to make him a stone casket so beautiful it will even impress a French marquess he made a bet with. Danilo gladly takes this challenge upon himself but Prokopych warns him that he mustn't let his craft consume him. Unfortunately, Danilo won't listen and after failing to make a stone casket so perfect that it seems like the stone had come to life, he abandons both his worried master and his lovely and loving fiancee Katya to travel to the legendary Copper Mountain where the most beautiful stone cup ever created is located. In fact, the cup is said to be so enchanting that no one wants to (or can) leave the mountain ever again after seeing it just once. Danilo plans to uncover its ...

What Magical Memories the Stone Flower Brings!
7 February 2009 | by DiamandapcSee all my reviews

I too saw this movie when I was a child in the late forties. It left a magical impression on me!The story was fairy tale like, I wish I could remember the details, but I see in a lake a Knight in the mist and a stone flower appearing and a lady of the lake talking to him. Most of all I remember the colors that were so pale and the magical lake where the stone flower was found. I also saw the movie Sadko by the same director. Sadko was a similar movie of Russian folklore, again made in a magical way.I found Sadko in the NTSC system and bought it and that brought all my memories back. However when I was finally able to obtain The Stone Flower from Russia, but it is on the PAL system. I know I can convert it but it might cost more than buying one in the NTSC system. Does anyone know if this movie has been made in a form to be played on our DVD players that do not have the PAL ability?
