A rather charming little piece of cinema.
It’s “little” even literally speaking given the actual run time of just 57 minutes, which, I must say, was its main drawback for the story really felt underdeveloped and rushed as if there was just Act 1 and 2, and the ending, and almost no proper Act 3. Having further Wiki’ed it, I came across the following which might explain it:
The film was largely produced and shot by students of the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg.
It definitely had potential to be a quirky fairy tale, its cinematography and location shots were really good, but yet again it all felt too short story development-wise.
