Storyline

The Emperor of a European country demands new clothes to wear every day, in fact sometimes several times a day. He imposes a heavy tax on the poor citizens to pay for his vanity. An itinerant man and boy come to the capital city and see the injustice, and make friends, but they soon have to flee. They return disguised as arab tailors, and offer to make the Emperor a new suit of clothes. But only the wise will be able to see it; fools, or those unfit for their public office, will not see anything. The Emperor orders the suit made, and much money is needed to purchase the raw materials. Eventually the suit is ready, and the Emperor and his officials pretend that they can see a wonderful outfit; will anyone prick the bubble of the illusion? Written by Hazel Freeman <hazel@tguk.net>

Lavish version of the Andersen fairy tale
13 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

A Czech production with German assistance, this is a world away from the weak versions of fairy tale stories so beloved of the Eastern European bloc before 1990.

With lavish costumes and a well implemented script, the film appeals to young people with a developed version of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy story.

Tobias is believable as the young lead, and the Emperor and the Duchess are selfish and vain without being evil, so that the happily-ever-after ending is believable.
