| One of the best
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. I have seen a lot, but this stands out positively. Its art.

Its not easily digested, so if you like a movie without putting yourself into it, this would not be the one to choose then.

However if you like depth, humor and real affections and human emotions of all manners, this movie is a good choice.

Its about the transformation of being narrow, unhappy and closed to change into a sensitive, alertness, warmness that makes it possible to feel love and fullfillment. In this case for the very first time. Its the princess(Birgitte Price) that goes through the transformation, and she does it with amazing expressions and reality. The credit of this movie goes to her. The prince is good too, with just the right appearance and behaviour.

The main actors has a unique chemistry and are masters of acting. The dialogs are carefully chosen and penetrate accurately if you listen with your heart.

The shooting locations and music is very authentic and matching.

The essence of its story is timeless and valuable i.e. true love and how to be open to receive it and live it.
