26 February 2010 | by Maylow HayesSee all my reviews

This is a very surprising movie. It is surprising, that a movie, any movie, can be accomplished with such a modest budget.

The plot is entertaining, I tried to imagine what it would look like if it was written as a book, and it sounded very nice. It represents a mixture of various myths, legends and tales, including "The Beauty and the Beast", "Quasimodo", "Sleeping Beauty" and, I believe, I detected some references to "Red Heat" - an interesting concept.

The actors' play is very butaphoric, but after the first 5 minutes I somehow got adjusted to it.

The really surprising thing about this movie is, that despite its ridiculousness, it is amusing. It is absurd and is fun. And I had great time watching it.
