In this spectacular free adaptation of the popular theatre play "La Biche au Bois", the valiant Prince Bel-Azor pursues a baleful old witch to her impregnable castle, to save the beautiful young Princess Azurine.
Mildly entertaining film from the French filmmaker has a woman being burned to death because she was found guilty of being a witch. Afterward the woman reappears as an angel and seeks revenge. The woman turning into an angel and then seeking revenge doesn't seem to go together too well but even with that said this is a fairly entertaining movie. The special effects of the burning were nicely done as was the ending, which is sure to get a laugh. Nothing here is too overly impressive so I'd rank this as a middle ground for the director.
