Storyline

Once upon a time there was a kind and quiet old man with a grumpy and domineering old woman. The old man had his own daughter - a modest, beautiful and hard-working Nastya, and the old woman had her own - envious, couch potato, and the plain woman Marfushka. Once in the forest, Nastya meets her fate, a young man Ivan, whose beauty and power conquered a lot of girlish hearts. But pride and rudeness played a cruel joke with him - in front of the frightened Nastenka, the forest sorcerer turns Ivan's beautiful face into a bearish face. So he stayed on until he learns to do good deeds. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

Wow, what a misunderstanding!
18 August 2003 | by luinr1See all my reviews

For all of you, who think this movie is stupid, just because it doesn´t fit into your watching habits:

Is it bizarre? Of course it is, but check these really old German, French or English tales and legends. I wonder what you´d say to the original Brothers Grimm collection. I think that´s also the problem with understanding, the people of America simply don´t have this part of culture, because it comes directly from the medieval age.

The story has its roots so far away, so deep in the Slav history, that if Hollywood would like to make something comparable, they´d have to steal the story from some ancient native American tribe.
