The originality of this cinematic masterpiece is striking, as it exxxpertly blends layers of popular Indo-European fairytale culture with a creative, meaningful yet comedic story of discrimination, valour, love and lust for power.

Ogreall, it is a true must-watch for fairytale fanatics of all ages.

You are what you eat.
