Aexander Ptushko's film is fantasy in the decorous, heavy-handed post-war Soviet manner... but little charm or imaginative vitality.
How not to Americanize a Russian movie classic.
altho made in 1952 this seems as if a silent film from the grand old age somehow made with sound and color (which makes no sense i know). magic permeates this, the magic of childhood, the perception of childhood, the perception that believes in Christmas because NOT to believe was even worst than however foolish believing made one. a russian tale of adventure innocently yet stirringly told, of a journey (doh!), a little romance, some action, etc., etc., etc.
There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
