The Ice Mountain

Animated film for younger children based on the fairy tale by Kornel Makuszyński entitled „On Princess Marysia, the Black Swan and the Ice Mountain”. Marysia is a naughty and capricious little princess. In order to get a string of pearls, made of Zuzia’s tears, which birds had taken into the skies, she wants to marry a Prince with a palace in the clouds. When neither of the suitors meets her requirements she decides to chose a swan with the most beautiful song. As a punishment the Black Swan takes her to the Ice Mountain. She is to remain there until she understands how very wicked she is.
