He has no Libuška, his stepmother is like Dracula and instead of acorns, Czechs are laughing – eXtra.cz

The Norwegians decided to create their own remake of Václav Vorlíček’s famous fairy tale Three Nuts for Cinderella, thanks to which Czechs and people from many other European countries fell in love with Libuše Šafránková. The new version is like a copier, but it lacks the charm of the main character and other Czech stars. And there is ridicule. Take a look at the photo gallery to compare the Czech and Norwegian cast.

Libuše Šafránková continues to reign

Northerners, like the Czechs, bet on a beautiful winter landscape and distinctive music in 1973, but in it they are nowhere near gems. composer Karel Svoboda. It is emaciated and sounds more like a medieval open-air museum.

And the Czech, weaned by our Cinderella, naturally cannot even appreciate the quality of the main character represents Astrid Smeplass. She is a famous singer in Norway. In contrast our Libuše Šafránková, which it evoked in people feelings that she had to protect her, she lacked tenderness and kindness, but also a spark.
