This story, both happy and sad, is based on the popular fairy tales by Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen. Two parallel story-lines develop in this film. At a roadside inn, the puppets play out for their master a merry, magic fairy tale about a brave soldier and a wicked princess, a witch and a kind wizard, and a fantastic city where a ridiculous and silly king lives. The puppet show has a happy end. The film’s other story-line is different, with much more sad lyricism in it. In real life, unlike the puppet show, the relationship between the young puppeteer and his beloved is not that simple.
