The Animated Story of Muscular Princesses (And Also Some Strange Beheadings)


It’s an absurd story: ten princess are somehow becoming more and more muscular with each passing night, but to the chagrin of their king father. Some suitors try to solve the mystery, fail, are beheaded. Then one very special suitor shows up, and figures it all out because he is literally a brain. But it’s exactly that absurdism that brings this story, the 2009 graduation film of one Júlia Farkas, to life. Most people can color outside of the lines; not quite as many can do it with this much charm.
