The famous spooky tale, originally French, of a prince enchanted into a terrifying animal form, which deliver up to pure love, took advantage of director Juraj Herz to the visually impressive spectacle that benefits from the mysterious, confined spaces and from the lyrically tuned narrative. The fate of the youngest daughter of an impoverished buyer, who voluntarily ventures into the enchanted castle to save her father, originally compiled by František Hrubín. The director compared to tradition it the beast the lion form, but it recalled the sinister bird zobanem.The Film had a common budget, and also partly the decoration, with the image of "the Ninth heart". In the studio no 6 in Barrandov created by the architect Vladimír Labský multifunction decoration, which was after the adjustments used also during the filming of the movie "the Ninth heart", "the Secret of Steel city" and "Cat prince".
