Surprisingly faithful "adult" version of classic fairy tales, 8 October 2007
Author: lazarillo from Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile

An earlier reviewer did a pretty good job of summarizing this film, so I'll demur to him (especially since he obviously saw an English language copy of this, while I was stuck with a German one). What's most interesting about this is that it isn't simply a parody or a "perversion" of classic children's fairy tales like "Snow White", "Cinderella", and "Sleeping Beauty" as it is a re-telling of the original Grimm's Fairy tales, which are certainly not as overtly sexual as this movie, but are much more more disturbing and polymorphously perverse than the Disney-fied version we're all used to today.

This movie has a strange bestiality sub-theme. The "Snow White" character, for instance, is nearly raped by a bear (who "Sleeping Beauty" later discovers to be an enchanted prince) in a scene that prefigures Walerian Borozyx later notorious film "The Beast". This connection between animals, women, and sex is present in the original Grimm's Fairy Tales, however, just in a less explicit form. Then there's gruesome scenes like when Cinderella's step-sisters abandon her in the woods and she's raped and nearly killed by bandits, but saved by a kindly(?) witch who tricks the bandits by substituting human body parts from her stew for the girl. If this isn't from a Grimm's Fairy Tale, it's definitely in the spirit of one(aside, of course, from the pretty graphic rape scene). This is also the only version of "Cinderella" I've seen that remains true to the original text by having the wicked step-sisters cut off parts of their own feet in an effort to fit into the glass slipper!

Of course, this movie also makes plenty of concessions to more modern-day sexploitation. It has an idiot "comedy" duo bumbling around throughout all the inter-connected stories messing everything up. The pair both kiss "Sleeping Beauty" at the same time which somehow turns her into a raving nymphomaniac, but then no one, including (initially) the bear, will have sex with her (which is quite ridiculous as she is beautiful and practically naked). Then there's "Snow White" who for some reason is dressed in little more than a g-string in most of her scenes (but since she's played by luscious Swedish actress Marie Llijedahl I'm sure nobody will complain). Her seven dwarfs at one point revive her by smearing paint on her bare breasts, and the prince finally breaks her enchantment by doing more than just kissing her. There's also the most notorious scene where Llijedahl orally milks a cow, which is either obscene or very perverse (or perhaps completely innocent if you grew up as a Swedish farm girl). Even the most faithful story, "Cinderella" includes some full-frontal nudity and a racy catfight.

This movie is obviously "for adults" as the English-language title says, but it's nevertheless more faithful to the source material than the Disney versions of these stories.
