Princess Arete

A curious young princess, hindered by her royal status, watches the outside world go by. Sometimes she sneaks out of the palace; sometimes she escapes into the books she hides under her bed. Eager suitors, tasked with retrieving magical objects, come to court her, but do not charm her: "They will make you hate yourself if you listen to them for long enough," warns a wise, old witch. When the princess' father is tricked into giving her hand to a sorcerer, she is imprisoned in a tower. Will her blossoming friendship with a serving girl allow her to outfox the magician?

Diana Coles' The Clever Princess, first published in England in 1983, has become one of the most popular feminist fairy tales in Japan. Thanks to the efforts of a quartet of campaigners known as Group Women's Place, the Japanese translation of the story - Arete Hime no Boken first appeared in 1989. This stately paced 2001 adaptation by Mai Mai Miracle director Sunao Katabuchi stresses individual freedom and development. Unique character designs and fantastic medieval-themed tableaux make for gorgeous viewing.
