Storyline

A group of animators are in their study trying to make a shadow puppet show with fables from different historical periods and come up with six sweet and naughty fairy-tales: The princess of Diamonds, the Boy and the Fig Tree, The witch, The Old Lady's Cape, The Crunch Queen and the Fabulo, and Prince and Princess. All the stories have a moral message but they are not as traditional as it might be thought. Written by GitanillaOZ

Six beautifully animated classic stories.
18 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

This unusual animated movie is a children's movie for adults. Six short, beautifully animated, stories. Traditional fairy tales with princes, princesses, monsters and witches. Each story different, but in the same spirit. The animation technique is like nothing you've ever seen before. It's a gem of a movie, and I recommend it to anyone tired of standard Hollywood movies.
