well done
3 March 1999 | by AtulurSee all my reviews

This is said to be the most expensive fairy tale film that was ever shot in the Czech Republic. I appreciate especially the beautiful setting of Vranov and Dyji /a gorgeous chateau standing on a steep rock/. Of course, Jirina Bohdalova as The Envy /Zavist in Czech/ has no doubt managed to present one of the best performances in her actress`s career. She is able to play in various dresses and masks, and she does that in a brilliant way. She has proved her unique position amongst other Czech actresses in this film.
