Good adult fairy tale
10 December 2002 | by nl-7See all my reviews

Best quote by Etush (King) refering to his daughter lover: "Our state is very small, so we all have to fulfill numerous positions in our Government. So, as court prosecutor I demand death penalty for you, as your advocate I can not find anything in your favor, and as I judge I have to rule for the prosecutor and condem you to die. Oh, I forgot to mention, I also fulfill the role of an executioner and jailor"
