| 'Christmas on the Castle' is a wonderful danish fairytale with an episode for each day of December 1-24.
"A long time ago - so long that no one at all remembers it - there lived on this castle a king and his daughter, the lovely princess Miamaja. But even though he was a real fable King he was not fabulously rich, and that was due to the war... etc." So the narrator begins each episode. A story of a nice but somewhat dull king who is betrayed by his evil treasurer who is in league with a foreign colleague and aiming to take over the throne. The king's hot-tempered but cunning daughter however is not so easily fooled, and she is helped by the little folk. A handsome and able young huntsman arrives from the woods on the first day to stay at the castle, and gradually the princess and he fall in love! But alas - the princess is ordered to marry the prince of the enemy to put an end to the war. Every character is very lively portrayed, and much effort is put into making the (deliberately old fashioned) language rich and expressive of each character, and the dialogue contains lots of humour. And even though the final ending is inevitably rather predictable, the story contains many surprising twists and turns. Bodil Heister has composed well sounding original music and good songs for the series, and the actors are mostly well singing, especially the mother of the little folk, 'Mor Trisse' who has a particularly beautiful voice - small wonder as she is an opera soprano! Very recommendable for children between the age of 7 and 107!
