I love fairy tales
5 March 2005 | by suspirito-azulSee all my reviews

A beautiful Italian production that can take you to a far away time, filled with magic and romanticism. Great characters, locations and costumes. I would like to know if the story is based on a legend or something but anyway, it's great. The other 3 parts are also good, but not THAT good. If you liked this movie I recommend you to look for the other three parts and another movie called "Sorellina e il principe del sogno", starring Raz Degan (he is so hot) and Veronica Logan. Not recommended for too serious or pretentious people, it's just a fairy tale, but if you are like me and you enjoy dreaming of princes, kingdoms, horses and archery, then this movie is for you.
