Inhalt


Fairytale movie based on a story by the Brothers Grimm. When the princess loses a golden ball in the well, a frog recovers the precious piece – but only under the condition that the princess has to share her meals, drinks, and her bed with him. Without thinking, the princess promises him to fulfil his demands. But when the frog enters her bed, she throws him against the wall in disgust. Suddenly, the frog turns into a handsome prince. But he cannot stay with her because she has broken her promise. The princess starts to look for him and has to pass a couple of test to get to the castle of the Frog Prince. She can only enter the castle disguised as a boy. Now she is able to fulfil her promise by working as an assistant for the cooper, the cook, and the chamberlain. Thus, the Prince is released and can marry her.
