The movie is truly beautiful. Czech fairy tale story's like this have been unfortunately out of producing. Same happen to all eastern Europe co - productions like this. All kids and generations from mid 1950 to present kid generations in Europe loving this Czech fairy tale movies. Princ a Vecernice..actually made 1979 was especially scored with beautiful music from the great, outstanding, master - tastefully Czech composer Svatopluk Havelka. Special the string charts on his film music score are truly jazz influented in harmony style, sound and orchestration. The sound remind me to actual productions found on popular scores from Argentine composer - arranger Jorge Calandrelli. The film had beautiful costume outfits and living most from good -humorfully dialogs and acting and even not overwhelming - bigger than live special effects. The movie is a must for lovers of Czech - European fairy tale movies and European fairy tale story's.
