Victoria, a strong woman in her mid-forties, falls in love with a man who turns out to be a sociopath. If it can happen to Victoria, it can happen to anyone. Victoria, an immigrant from Liechtenstein, meets her "Prince Charming", the Olympic star Max Bauer, whom she fancied as a teenager. After a number of embarrassing attempts to revive his career in Europe, he tries to find fortune in "the land of endless opportunities". He flees to New York - directly into Victoria's arms and tiny apartment. It's love at first sight for both- or so it seems. As he gradually reveals his abusive side, the drama of their "asymmetrical relationship" develops, as the former world star uses his fading glory to first dazzle, then exploit and abuse her in every which way. She unsuspectingly holds on to the relationship, only to find herself in mortal danger.

User Reviews

Honest, authentic story-telling! Surprise ending!
24 January 2021 | by fraehmkeSee all my reviews

Prince Harming starts out like a romantic comedy but then makes a surprising swift turn. Then, step-by-step, it tells the story of a love relationship gone wrong. The acting was authentic, it felt real and I suspect that anyone who has ever questioned why a woman might stay in an abusive relationship will get their answer in this film. Besides that, it was an entertaining and at times funny film with quite the twist ending!
