An alternate retelling of the classic Sleeping Beauty fairy tale. The story begins in the same way as the original story but our young heroine instead of falling under the mystical spell begins to uncover the mystery of the man who cursed her and his relationship with her mother. It is a realistic reminder that "They lived happily ever after...", may not be as happy as we once envisioned.


Winner of the 1990 Oofuji Noburou Award at the Mainichi Film Awards.

Ibara-Hime mata wa Nemuri-Hime or Briar Rose, Sleeping Beauty is an alternate retelling of the classic fairy tale. If it’s possible to turn a fairy tale into a gritty and realistic feeling drama then this short film succeeds marvelously.

The story is told through stop motion animation using dolls and puppets and is narrated by the lead character, the young princess. At first it seems almost exactly like the classic story and the narration brings us up to the current events. The unnamed princess was cursed as a baby by a strange one legged man that she will die on her 15th birthday read more
