Das Zauber-Männchen

Das Zauber-Männchen

DDR 1959/1960, Spielfilm

Inhalt

An adaptation of "Rumpelstiltskin", the fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. When the miller Kunz claims that his daughter Marie is able to spin straw into gold, the girl is brought to the king′s castle as a prisoner. Here, she is supposed to demonstrate her ability and fill up the state′s treasury. Marie is absolutely distressed. Suddenly, a dwarfish creature appears in her room and offers her a deal: In return for Marie′s first-born child it will spin all the straw to gold. In her despair, Marie agrees. One year later, Marie - who has meanwhile married the king - expects her first child and the dwarf returns to remind the young queen of her promise. In an attempt to appear noble, the dwarf offers her one last chance: If Marie can guess the dwarf′s name, she may keep her child.
