A poor little girl slips in a circus one day and sees a puppets' show. Later she returns to the empty circus looking for a fairy she was fascinated by.
I saw this movie when I was about 6 years old and I was deeply impressed by its beauty. Although the story is admittedly sentimental, it is very adequate for children. The highlight of the movie is the magic of the images showing some string puppets, especially at the beginning, which I still remember after more than forty years! Because of this movie I became a fan of puppets and piano music, especially Chopin whose Polonaise Heroic is "played" by a funny old pianist. I have been trying to get a copy of this jewel for many years hoping to see it again. I strongly recommend it if you want to develop sensitivity in your children.
