In the land of King Dobromil honest labour, decency, honesty and respect among people has become a thing of the past. Instead the country is gradually succumbing to Hell’s force and, thus, those who have some remnants ...展开of decency prefer to flee.
When things in the land go from bad to worse the King in his helplessness sells his soul to the Devil, and his base Minister takes over the reigns of power. At this very time in the Kingdom appears an inconspicuous merry dreamer called Philip. When muddle-headed herbalist and sorceress Apollonia sees him coming with an ass she is convinced he is the saviour from her dreams.
No-one realises he is a Prince from a neighbouring Kingdom. And, lo-and-behold, Philip really manages to save the land from Hell not, though, through any magic but because of his courage, humour, his sincere love for Princess Annie and, maybe, his wellaimed cheek to counter the omnipotent Lucifer.
All this, and much more, we will see portrayed using kind-hearted poeticism, nerve-tingling drama and, above all, distinctive humour in a classic fairy-tale film created by noted scripwriters Miloš Macourek and Ondrej Šulaj, and directed by Roman Vávra.
With such seasoned authors and the director’s unusual vivid imagination, a spectacle for everyone is ensured. It is a film for those who want to relax, amuse themselves, or just pause a while, but, mainly, it is a film for people both big and small who believe that evil will not triumph as long as we do not tremble in fear when facing it.
See how beautiful the princess is:
You all gonna love her! Just like me...
