The Golden Goose

Original title: (Die goldene Gans)
GDR, 1964, 65 min, color
English dubbed; Spanish, French voice over

Klaus lives and works with his two brothers, Kunz and Franz, but they are cruel and treat him poorly. One day, Klaus helps an old woman and offers to share his frugal meal. In return, she gives him a goose with feathers made of pure gold as a gift.


Not only does the goose look unusual, it also possesses the most unusual characteristic: all those who are prying, nosy, envious and rapacious get stuck to it and become glued to one another. On his subsequent journey, Klaus therefore collects a weird, motley following – it's a sight that makes even the melancholy princess laugh.
