Trivia

According to director Václav Vorlícek, his first choice for the role of princess Arabela was Libuse Safránková, the star of his earlier feature films. Unfortunatelly, the actress was ill at the time of shooting, so Vorlícek cast young actress Jana Nagyová instead. However, because of her strong Slovak accent was Nagyová over-dubbed in post production by Libuse Safránková. See more »

User Reviews

just a fairy tale
30 March 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

magic, escape, chain of two worlds, memorable Rumburak and his ring, fragile princess Arabela, extraordinary metamorphosis and Peter as bridge between myth and reality. a series out of age and full of good memories. a tale in perfect sense. and universe of Narnia, Neverending Tale in basic measure, without complicated recipes or strange parables. the reality of Czekoslovakia was present in each part of Communist puzzle. so, it was not only movie for children but , in same measure, image of a society for who many windows was just walls. not political satire; only suggestions. innocent, nice, soft. and the circle is OK. nothing fake, far from special effects or 3D, only marmalade for Sunday. a freedom exercise. nothing else. naive, childish, picture book. and, yesterday was enough. maybe, today too.
