Storyline

Cinderella (named Zezolla) and her family live mid 20th century, where fashion is practically everything. As her father is won over by a selfish woman named Claudette, Cinderella must keep her new step-mother from murdering the only family she has left. Add in an anti-social mermaid literally living in a cave, a bored prince with an ear for rock n' roll, and the glamour of the 1950's and one'll find that this story can't grow old.

Trivia

Zezolla plants a rosebush on her mother's grave, and at key moments is guided by a bird that helps her on her quest to get to the ball. This is an allusion to the Grimm version of the story, where Cinderella did not have a fairy godmother, but rather a tree that contained magic birds. See more »

A quirky and wildly glamorous modernisation of the Cinderella story
29 January 2000 | by zh84See all my reviews

This film moves the Cinderella story forward to the early 1950s and makes good, if eccentric, use of the Isle of Man as a background. The Ugly Sisters have become wildly glamorous upper-class English girls, and together with Kathleen Turner as the stepmother they flounce about in various wonderful period costumes. The story is altered a little from the traditional version: early on it is oddly combined with the plot of "King Lear", and in later stages Cinderella is rather more assertive than is usual. It looks splendid and works on the whole pretty well, but does go over the top at times.
