Three Wishes for Cinderella                                                               Czechoslovakia/Germany, 1973                                                                                         IMDB                                                                                                   

Are you actually familiar with this movie? It is a classic in many European countries (Czech republic, Slovakia, Germany, Norway, Switzerland…) but I hear it was also released in United Kingdom and USA. Anyway, it’s pretty famous here in Central Europe :). The title role is played by Libuse Safrankova who later starred in fairytales such as The Little Mermaid (1976), The Prince and the Evening Star (1979) or The Salt Prince (1982).

The weirdest adaptation of Cinderella you’ll ever see. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Here you have a mermaid instead of a fairy godmother, motorcycles instead of horses, the slippers made of flower petals instead of glass and wicked stepsisters with axes. Which is kind of cool, you know.
