A Czar who attempts to trick a creature that demands tribute from him into taking a fisherman's baby instead of his newborn heir. Complications arise when the daughter of the creature, Barbara, requests a human suitor to find true love.
This is the classical retelling of the charming fairytale the princess and the pea, the story of a pretty young girl who arrives at a castle claiming to be a princess. The prince falls in love with her at once, but his cautious parents decide to test her to see if she is a real princess by putting a pea beneath twenty mattresses she must sleep on. This film focuses mainly upon the handsome young prince, who, just after the arrival of the self-proclaimed princess, sets off on a quest to find a real princess to marry. During his quest he encounters a foolish, superficial princess, a princess who challenges her poor suitors with an impossible riddle to get rid of them and a princess devoted to art. Returning home empty-handed and broken-hearted, the prince realizes a real princess has been under his nose all along in the form of the young girl who arrived on his doorstep. Beautiful scenery, a wonderful storyline and great acting combine to make an enchanting film that I highly recommend for those who love a good fairytale.
