| Waiting for a remake...
I saw this film once, when i was seven. Only once. I am twenty-five today, and i remember having drawn the Princesse's crown on my school books for at least five years after that. I kept the memory of this great (oh so great!) story with no alteration of any sort. The images, the lines, the characters, everything. Today, after eighteen years, i saw it once again thanks to a friend who found the DVD for me (i had been looking for it everywhere ever since) and the emotion was still there.

I really hope that more people will have the chance to see it, because it really is a good film (how many films stay for such a long time in somebody's mind?). The plot is nice and clever. The cast is perfect. It might need remastering to suit contemporary expectations, especially when in comes to special effects, but it has such a nice taste of greatness that to me it could really join the Clash of the Titans in my top-list of old good movies...
