Hans im Glück

Deutschland 1998, TV-Spielfilm


Lucky Hans and His Golden Journey

In "Lucky Hans and His Golden Journey" (based on the fairy tale by the Grimm brothers) Hans decides to return home after spending seven years as an apprentice with a miller. The miller rewards him with a big nugget of gold which the beautiful miller′s daughter wraps in her red cloth.

On the way back to his parents′ home, Hans meets a man on a horse and decides to exchange the nugget for the horse because he is tired of dragging the heavy gold along. Hans rides against his will into a wedding party and lands between the horns of a cow. The next exchange is thus perfect. But when the cow doesn′t produce any milk and instead chases Hans into a pond, he exchanges the animal for a pig, then the pig for a goose and the goose for two grinding stones. And he loses them down a well. He arrives back at his parents empty-handed, but healthy and full of the joys of life - and starts thinking about the pretty miller′s daughter again...
