It really starts out like every other fairy tale, doom will come over the kingdom of King Robert VIII (Jan Révai) by the hands of evil sorceress Murien (Simona Zmrzlá) if his daughter Ellen (Natalia Germani) hasn't found true love on her 20th birthday. So the king sends out for suitors from all over the realm, but only one responds, Prince John (Marek Lambora) - who might just do the trick because he and Ellen had been childhood besties. But a lot of water has run down the river, and even if they're married on Ellen's birthday and dutifully lock lips, there's little love left between them and a black storm destroys the kingdom ... and the next morning Ellen wakes up in her bed again, only it's the same day again, her 20th birthday/wedding, and everything, including the black storm, happens just like the day before, with the only difference that she's in the know - and of course, she wakes up to the same day again - and again - and again ...

Now it doesn't take a genius to find out that it takes more than a kiss to prove you're in love, and Ellen's actually a pretty smart woman, so she decides to try to make herself fall in love with Prince John - which is harder than imagined, as the two have drifted apart considerably since childhood. In fact it's so hard that Ellen goes for a different strategy, and upon advice of her father's alchemist Archibald (Roman Zach), she decides to take the fight to Murien, accompanied only by Prince John and her best friend, alchemist-in-training Amelia (Eliska Krenková). But they have to fight her at her own turf, her castle which it is almost impossible to get into even, and even once they're successful, it's not that Amelia hasn't expected them and set up defenses. And also, Ellen will not wake up on the same day indefinitely, and her "expiration date" is already looming on the horizon should she not be able to save the day soon ...


One surface one might very easily call this the Brothers Grimm doing Groundhog Day, as the initial set-up could be any number of stories of the former, and I don't even have to suggest where the endless repetition of the basic story comes from. And to a point, this is already a very apt description of this movie - but only to a point, as once the basic concept is established (within ten minutes or so), the film takes a slow turn towards dark fantasy, in the process doing much character work it has (intentionally) neglected earlier on, and giving the audience a very rounded out adventure. And even if it's very obvious there'll be a happy ending for this (and that's not even a spoiler), it's very interesting how the film gets there, and how the story twists and turns within its self-imposed narrative ramifications. And above all that, the Czech locations alone are already sights to behold. And all of this makes this a very nice piece of fantasy cinema indeed.
