'''''Princess''''' is a 2006 animated movie by Danish director Anders Morgenthaler, otherwise perhaps best known for his work on the newspaper comic ''Wulfmorgenthaler'' that features Dolph the Fascist Hippo. The story centers around 32-year old missionary August. After the death of his sister Christina, a porn star known as Princess, he takes in her five-year-old daughter Mia trying to overcome his feelings of guilt that he was unable to save her mother. Upon finding out that his niece has suffered abuse at the hands of her mothers employers and that said employers continue to exploit his dead sister's image he goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the porn industry. In particular he wants to get even with Charlie, the person he holds responsible for getting his sister involved with porn in the first place. Morgenthaler intended this movie as a critique of the objectification of women in the porn industry. ''Princess'' (much in the same way as WaltzWithBashir) combines animation with live action for dramatic effect.

* BerserkButton: For August finding out that his sister's grave has been turned into a shrine for her porn persona Princess complete with dildo shaped pillars and even more so reading Mia's medical file and finding out the extent to which she has been abused.
* BigBrotherInstinct: After the death of their parents, August felt responsible of looking after Christina and feels guily as hell for not succeeding at the job.

Added DiffLines:

* ThereAreNoTherapists: Apparently. It never occurs to August that he could benefit from grief counseling, or that a therapist might be able to help Mia cope with all that she's been through. On the other hand, it might have put a damper on the vigilante justice vibe. Why take an [[spoiler:emotionally, physically, and sexually]] abused girl to therapy when you can help her [[spoiler:beat her molester with a crowbar]]?
