Go watch this its fun
29 November 2018 | by veselahanaprahaSee all my reviews

It's a great fairytale about hell and love. The costumes are beautifull the actors young and talented. The songs are catchy. There is a lot of funny scenes. it's worth watching at least once or twice. it kind of reminds me of one older Czech fairytale also about the hell called Give the Devil His Due from 1985. (There is even same actor playing one of the main characters in both of these movies) i really recommend watching this it is a lot of fun for whole family.
