Princess Marleen wants to marry the love of her life Konrad. Her father though sees no way to allow this and forbids them to see each other ever again. After they met each other anyway, her father has a terrible punishment for Marleen. But this strong love resist time and other barriers throughout a dramatic plot.
Prinzessin Maleen (Princess Maleen) is... Beautifully Made and Puts American Fairy Tales to Shame!
I've known for a while that almost any other country can make period/fantasy films better than American companies, but this just proves my point. Not only is 'Princess Maleen' foreign but also made for television. Yes, it's German, it wasn't on at the big screen, it's only an hour long, but it makes recent Disney projects look like squat. Sorry, Largest-Fantasy-Company-in-the-World, you've been beat.
The first amazing thing about the movie is that the story is not well known in America. And that being so, I won't tell you exactly what it is.
The acting is good, and the costumes are historical but beautiful. Not to mention the scenery, which is breathtaking. It doesn't have that "Disney magic," but that's almost a relief because it feels more genuine and real.
This film, along with all the others in this German fantasy film franchise, are must-sees. If you appreciate underappreciated fairy tales, you will not be disappointed.
