Incredibly Entertaining Comedic Fantasy!
2 February 2018 | by marthahunterSee all my reviews

Although "Princess Cinderealla" has been on my want-to-see list for decades, I had fairly low expectation on its quality. However, my modest expectations were completely blown away by an amazingly entertaining comedic fantasy. There are no cliched plot lines here, and no one will be able to guess what will happen next.

This English language version features witty dialog, well developed charming characters, impressive set designs (e.g. plenty of custom designed props, several impressive expressionist sets (i.e. the Ogre's abode), imaginative and highly amusing action, and with a delightful deft touch to the direction.

One of the clever devices in this film is a witch's broom that powers a cart that efficiently transports both a witch and her ogre cohort! The ogre is often seen as big dumb oaf that has plenty of funny scenes, but there are some surprising moments when this same brute turns quite deadly.

Another big break with traditional fairy tales is that Prince Charming is largely side lined. In fact, the most actively heroic characters are Count No Count (fortified with his "atomic strength pill"), who is brave, handsome, and altruistic, and his side kick, the affable Mr. Goodluck.

Princess Cinderella is woefully obscure fantasy film and wonderful fun for whole family. Highly recommended!
