The old King (Vladimír Mensík) is not satisfied with his four children. It is high time for the Princesses to get married and for the Prince to assume the reign. Once the King sets out to the fowling and he entrusts the kingdom to the Prince Velen (Juraj Durdiak). His sisters want him to provide them with the bridegrooms. A beautiful girl Evening Star (Libuse Safránková) appears to Velen and he falls in love with her at once. Evening Star also likes Velen and therefore, for a kiss, she helps him to get married his sisters to her brothers Moonbeam, Sunbeam and Wind. After the King returns home he does not find the daughters because the bridegrooms took them right away. The angry King assigns the Prince to bring them home. Written by NFA.cz

Princ a Vecernice
10 December 2006 | by jaquelondreSee all my reviews

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.
