Princess is a heart-warming drama-comedy about overweight 18 year old Maja, whose size makes it difficult for her to be socially accepted and to make her dreams come true. It is an intimate story about people and their dreams - unfulfilled, suppressed and lost. About waiting for the world around you to fulfill your dreams vs. finding happiness in who you are, no matter what reality you live in. Written by Sandra Harms

About Maja, gentle
25 January 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

a beautiful fat girl. her story as carpet from expectations, searches, pain and naivety. about limits of friendship and trust, success and hope. not great tale but sensitive and warm. pledge for tolerance and for images behind masks. and impressive Zandra Andersson. lightly movie with pieces of cinnamon. and picture of self definition. pledge for difference and lesson about interior beauty, small things and power as part of your mind. deep roots and easy story.in fact, a strange Sweedish film out of ordinaries rules. slice of spring day in which rain and sun are hands of same body. and small crumb from life in happy end juice.
