Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - zelluloid.de - uncut.at - goldenerspatz.de - teleman.pl - german-screenings.de - filmweb.pl - telepool.de: «The beautiful miller's daughter Marie is not only very beautiful, but also clever and self-confident. Her father is dreaming of a career as miller to the royal court. He boasts about Marie and claims that she can spin straw into gold. The greedy Minister believes the miller's every word: The royal treasury is empty - this golden girl would be more than welcome. He abducts the girl and takes her to the castle. She is to spin straw into gold. All Marie's protestations that her father had exaggerated are to no avail. Suddenly a little troll appears before her as if from nowhere and promises to spin the straw into gold. For his help he demands Marie's ring. The next morning all the straw has vanished, the chamber is full of gold coins. The Minister demands more gold from Marie and has more straw brought in. For three nights the troll helps Marie to spin straw into gold. On the third night Marie has nothing more to give the troll. She promises him her first child if she becomes Queen. The King finally finds Marie and takes her as his wife. Then the manikin appears again and demands Marie's child. She refuses and the cunning troll suggests a deal. If she can guess his name within three days, then she may keep her child. Everyone in the kingdom has to help find the manikin's name. When the troll comes to get the child, Marie tells him his name. In his rage Rumpelstiltskin tears himself apart. Everyone is happy and the evil Minister is driven out of the court».
