Märchenfilme der DEFA East German Fairytale Films

A co-production between the East German DEFA-Studio für Spielfilme and the Czechoslovakian Barrandov Studios, Václav Vorlícek’s 1973 film, Drei Haselnüsse für Aschenbrödel (Three Wishes for Cinderella) was filmed with an ensemble cast of Germans and Czechs both speaking their native languages. This Bohemian variation of the classic Cinderella fairy tale (which features a crossbow-wielding huntress-heroine armed with three magical nuts instead of a fairy godmother and a pair of glass slippers) has since become a holiday tradition in both countries.
