A fairy story told with cinematic magic

A princess (Catherine Deneuve), advised by her fairy (Delphine Seyrig), refuses her father’s love by running away, hidden in a donkey skin, which she sometimes leaves when she is alone in her hut.

A prince (Jacques Perrin) discovers her and falls in love with her. A fairy-tale by Charles Perrault revisited by Jacques Demy - a treat for the end-of-year festivities!
