This unlikely cult film is in the style of a story by the Brothers Grimm, who were quite stern moralists under the fairy tale gloss often applied to film versions of their work - so be warned. First broadcast on British TV in the 1960s, this had quite an effect on the nation's youth, with many being able to recall its nightmarish qualities years later. A selfish princess who is unable to love has her beauty marred as punishment, while the sad prince who loves her is turned into a lonely, and not particularly nice, bear. Its wild design and uncompromising message certainly make an impression, and shows how tales of princesses and curses were very much about real life.

    My sister has watched this film and she said it was really good.
    She had to have English subtitles because the film is in German.

    It was a bit boring but it was funny I liked it a bit was the fish and the little person. I would give it 1 out of 5 because it was a bit boring and a bit good but I didn't like it.
