Enchanting fairy tale
16 September 2020 | by louiseculmerSee all my reviews

A charming film based on two lesser known Grimms fairy tales - The Seven Ravens, and The Six Swans. A young girl called Bohdanka (Martha Issova) has grown up believing she is an only child, then discovers that she had seven brothers who were accidentally turned into ravens by her mother. Bohdanka sets out to find her brothers and free them from the spell they are under. Martha Issova is delightful as the spirited heroine, Prince Bartolomej (Lukas Prikazsky) is more interesting than the usual fairy tale prince, the ravens are remarkably lifelike, and the fairy tale atmosphere is beautifully captured in this enchanting film.
