‘fraid I’m not quite old enough to remember this, so I went into the busy cinema fresh.
A brave prince wants to win the heart of a stubborn princess by finding The Singing Ringing Tree for her. He finally locates it in the magical realm of an evil dwarf who offers him a deal: he can keep the tree if it starts singing before sundown – which it will only do if the princess truly loves him. Otherwise, he will be turned into a bear. Very Plausible.
If you mention The Singing Ringing Tree to some, they mention the evil dwarf. And yes, the dwarf is in fact evil.
The transformation of Prince to Bear and Rough Princess to Fit Princess were very,very good considering when it was made.
It’s a story book come to life. Hans Christian Anderson spliced with The Brothers Grimm, and very lush to look at. Full of colour, and the bear costume is the best I’ve ever seen.
It’s a very well put together fairy tale with a simple moral story. Be nice.
