Unfortunately, what really subverts this fairy tale is the poor performance of Kam Heskin as Queen Paige. Paige is supposed to be a medical student seeking residency in a hospital. Lines like, "I thought I was doing pretty good for a farm girl from Wisconsin," are delivered without a hint of irony. This queen seems more conscious of her golden tresses than what lies beneath their roots. On the other hand, King Edvard does most of the work as an earnest, well-bred royal who wants to save the bobcats and the mountain rams that live under his stewardship. Together, theirs is a lopsided, ultimately unrealistic couple, who can't quite pull off the fairy tale ending.

Shot in Bulgaria, the local dances and customs do lend credence to the faraway-land feel of Belavia. And the ski and snowboard scenes are pretty lifelike. But the snowmobile chase scene features a stunt man with bright yellow hair-- a laughable stand-in for King Edvard. Ultimately, fairy tale fans can do much better than this disappointing romantic DVD.
