One of the best (if not "The Best") fairy tales ever seen.
I saw this film first time back there in mid-80s, being around 10-years old, and it was wonderful. I've seen it several times since there, and impression never changed, regardless of age. I'm very fond of Barandov Studios' fairy tales, but this film is the best of them. Safrankova, Travnicek, Bartoska -- what would better for the film?
The only pity that like many other wonderful films it isn't translated to English (Am I wrong?) -- so in people not knowing Chech/Russian/German don't able to enjoy it. Well -- their loss!
