A 4-star review from Ben Nicholson at CineVue"It's a real charmer... makes this endearing fairytale all the more timeless even as its underlying politics and the irresistible Šafránková give it a decidedly modern slant."

It took me a while to find it on BBC Genome, because the BBC called it Three Gifts for Cinderella. It was indeed Gabriel Woolf narrating. First showing February-March 1975.Ged Parsons wrote:In the 1970s, this was shown on BBC 1's 'Tales from Europe', in 3 or 4 installments, with Gabriel Wolf's(?) narration laid over the original dialogue,
which was still audible in the background.

A fabulous full-page appreciation by Pamela Hutchinson in the latest Sight & Sound magazine"In this high-definition 4K restoration, the film looks fresh and detailed and ready to be enjoyed at many festive firesides to come. This edition also includes a vastly well-informed video appreciation by Michael Brooke and a similarly detailed essay by Tim Lucas."
