Do you remember this advert or this film?

I have been racking my brain for ages, trying to remember both an advert and a film, and wonder if anyone could help me?

The advert was shown in the UK (and maybe here) and involves a Chinese girl chasing another little girl under bright red banners, and there is a cherry singing a song. The Chinese girl sneaks up on the other girl and eats the cherry ...

The film is very old; I saw it many years ago and it was already old then (I think). Anyway, I believe it was a depiction of Charles Kingsley's 'The Water Babies', possibly Danish. I saw it when I was a child and was absolutely mesmerised by it. What I remember is absolutely beautifully shot images of girls, dressed in flimsy ethereal clothes, swimming around underwater, amongst rocks and underwater flora. I don't remember the plot (?) but am assuming it was something to do with the Water Babies.

I have googled, but to no avail. Any thoughts please?

Have no idea on the film though but am intrigued. Hope someone else can help on that...

Oh thanks isha! I don't know how you managed that ... I think the version that I saw televised was cut, but that is definitely it.

And you almost certainly were not around when the film was made, and probably not when I saw it either

You're very welcome.

Hehe! In the event I was around when either the film was made or when you saw it, I will let you know - but only by PM!
