i saw this one recently. dark atmosphere makes this fairy tale something remarkable, the dialogs are good and so is the cast. i'd appreciate better video quality but hey, it was made in 1982.
the music was really bad. i regard Karel Svoboda but this one was too much. electro-medieval music mixture didn't work at all, it ruined the show. the synths which were supposed to substitute real instruments were incredibly poor.
i wonder who made the costume because it reminded me flash gordon, masters of universe and flicks like that. children may surely enjoy this one if they like dark fairy tales (with good end)...
