Watch Hans Christian Andersen: My Life As a Fairy Tale
- 1 Season
This TV movie fictionalizes the life of the famous fairy tale creator Hans Christian Andersen. It is clear from a very young age that Andersen has a unique gift for telling stories, but he has a hard time fitting in with the real world. As he writes stories, he also seeks to gain the affections of the woman he loves. As Andersen' story continues, parallels start to emerge between his life and the stories he writes. Parts of the Nightingale, The Snow Queen and The Little Mermaid are neatly woven into the fabric of the plot.
