It certainly did not do what was said on the box, but that's what makes it good. Not horrific, not too much fighting, thank goodness. It was a nice story and beautiful to look at, as were most of the actors. The music was also lovely, and not too intrusive, rare these days in films and TV. The English subtitles (and the blurb on the box) were presumably done using something like Babel fish, so sometimes had to be re-translated as it went along, but that only added to its charm. Looking forward to seeing the sequel.
