Maximilian Simonischek and Cornelia Groshel as Arbo and Elsa, or the Beast and Beauty
Unfortunately, this version has no subtitles (there used to be a partial video with English subtitles but it has since been taken down). You can also read the synopsis at IMDB to help fill in any holes
Also note: a fairy tale heroine named Elsa with a long blonde side braid?...interesting coincidence
But seriously, we were impressed with the movie overall, especially since the film seems to have flown under the radar in the US. It's a very timeless, classic retelling, and I could see it being a lot of people's favorite (I still have a personal, emotional attachment to the Disney musical, but this movie is a bit more realistic and not aimed towards children necessarily). For anyone who watches, feel free to chime in with comments-what do you like/dislike about this version, how is it similar to/different from the Disney and the Beaumont (even the Cocteau)? For example, I thought the reason she went to the castle-to simply give him a rose which would, in theory, make up for the rose her father took, was a refreshingly logical thing for Elsa to think. It took away a lot of the extremity of the whole "I will die for you, Father" episode which can come across negatively, especially in this feminist society.
