Get ready for the Disney movies, people.
So I’m reading the article and then this:
For example, there is the tale of a maiden who escapes a witch by transforming herself into a pond. The witch then lies on her stomach and drinks all the water, swallowing the young girl, who uses a knife to cut her way out of the witch.
German fairytales are so brutal. (I love that)
Where did the knife come from though
All young girls in fairy tales have knives in their hearts. They come in so handy. To cut away threads of lies; to slice open lips that have been sealed. To part the bellies of witches.
All young girls contain blades. The trick is knowing how to use them.
Sechs auf einen Streich is a German fairy tale series. It’s called “six in one go” because 6 fairy tale films were produced the first year. They were successful and the next year they produced 8 films. Starting with 2010, 4 films are produced every year. So far, there are 30 films in the series. 26 of them are based on Brothers Grimms’ fairy tales and 4 are based on Andersen’s. The gifset does not include this year’s (2013) films.
The gang as fairy tale villains
This is beautiful.
