Popis Although fairy-tales were among the most popular genres both in the GDR and in Czechoslovakia, there was no guarantee that Three Nuts for Cinderella would achieve equal success in both countries. Yet, despite the differences in the respective concepts of filmmaking for children this is exactly what happened. The smooth and successful implementation of the co-production traced in this paper was conditioned by the East German studio’s appreciation of the Czechoslovak approach to the genre, as well as by DEFA’s fondness for Barrandov’s scriptwriters and directors. The exceptionally successful co-production Three Nuts for Cinderella highlights some of the advantages as well as certain pitfalls of those international projects established between film studios from two Soviet bloc countries that focused on popular genre production. Rather than the product of a magic formula for a popular fairy-tale genre film, the success of Three Nuts for Cinderella was a result of a pragmatic alliance that united two production facilities under a singular creative concept built around a transnational story.
