Storyline

A little girl Assol met a wizard and it has been foretold: "... it will be a fine sunny day when a beautiful ship under scarlet sail comes and the noble prince will take you away from here. He'll take you to the world of your dreams, where you will be loved and happy." The neighbours told jokes about her, children teased her, but she waited for her prince. She trusted in the miracles and waited. Arthur Gray's rule was "if you can make a miracle, do it!". And he made a miracle for the wonderful romantic girl.

Trivia

Vasiliy Lanovoy (Arthur Grey) wanted to surprise his wife and other guests at the resort in Yalta where the movie was shot. He did so by asking the captain of the ship that was used for the movie to sail to Yalta with all the scarlet sails showing. He said the reaction was the same as in the movie, one of disbelief and amazement. See more »

A Romantic Fairy Tale
9 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Alye Parusa" can best be described as a romantic fairy tale.

Its about the pursuit and attainment of true love whatever the obstacles. Alexander Grin created a world that is magical, beautiful, sentimental and captivating.

Its a shame he's unheard of outside of Russia and generations there have loved his classic novel for its adventure spirit, its belief in will overcoming the trials of the sea, time, human skepticism and the fulfillment of human happiness in the most idyllic of settings.

Vasily Lanovoy is well cast as Grey and the incomparable Anastasiya Vertinskaya shines as Assol and they stand out on the silver screen as the star-crossed lovers. Alexandr Ptushko brought the novel to life and one is drawn into a world that's timeless like a fairy tale but which never loses sight of the human element and the yearnings of the principal leads.

I won't give away the beautiful ending except to note its worth the price of admission to this movie. Its so popular that an entire festival is devoted to it in Saint Petersburg.

Its family-friendly entertainment of the highest caliber and is highly recommended!
