Abstract

Summary‚Three Wishes for Cinderella‘ (Tři oříšky pro Popelku / Drei Haselnüsse für Aschenbrödel) is one of the most successful fairy tale films in Czech and German TV. Produced in 1973, it is shown up to now regularly around Christmas in both countries. Every year around the same time, at Moritzburg Castle near Dresden, which has been chosen as place of the ball in the movie, one can see a special Cinderella exhibition. In his paper the author investigates the question of the success of this film. He presents the conditions of the Czech-German joint production during the time of the so called normalisation after the Prague Spring. He compares the story and figures with its literary models (Božena Němcová, Brothers Grimm), and discusses some theories about the modernity of characters, especially of Cinderella as a modern emancipated woman. The core of the paper is the analysis of the narrative structure itself, which may be considered as the secret to the success of the movie.
