Looking for help identifying a movie I saw as a kid. It was either played on TV in early 90's or I saw it on a rented videotape. It featuring a guy/girl romantic couple in some sort of castle/chivalry era. A final dramatic scene has them saying to each other lines from Christina Rossetti's poem, "If I were king (what would you do?), I'd make you queen" and likewise "If I were queen ... I'd make you king."

The film showed flashbacks of a young boy and girl wandering through the woods, Hansel and Gretel-like, of which I was under the impression that it was supposed to be (symbolically?) younger versions of the same people.

Even as a kid I thought it had poor production quality and it seemed like it was stitched together from unrelated material -- for example, maybe it actually borrowed snippets from a Hansel and Gretel production even though that had nothing to do with the main plot for the adult actors. I remember the music as cheesy and dated, but the whole memory is getting a bit vague by now.

Does this ring a bell for anyone? I've googled and searched both IMDB and this site, and can't find anything like this.

I found an IMDB page with credits for Rosetti, giving her credit when her poems are used as lyrics (imdb.com/name/nm1966526) but all the credits appear to be for "In The Bleak Midwinter". It might not even list a credit where the lines are only recited, rather than sung. –  afeldspar Sep 13 '14 at 18:13
