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

Aleksandr Ptushko demanded that only the real ship with real scarlet sails would be used. So 2,000m of scarlet silk had in fact been bought for the movie. See more »

One of my absolute favourites from Ptushko
29 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've liked all that I've seen from Aleksandr Ptushko, the three films of his that have been shown on MST3K are much better than they're made out to be because the original versions are beautiful but are ruined significantly by the dubs. Scarlet Sails is one of his absolute best, if I had a top 3 I would almost certainly put it up there alongside Stone Flower and The Tale of Tsar Sultan. Like with all of Ptushko's films, it is visually stunning with photography that has a simple sweep that is kept unobtrusively and breathtaking sets and scenery that makes you wish you were in Russia. Any details seen like the ship are so well constructed also that you are convinced they're real. The music is sumptuous and has a feel of affecting romance and wondrous fantasy, it also has a very Soviet sound to it and if there was a CD of just the music I'd gladly buy it. The dialogue is noble and well-written, clearly written with heart and thought, yet it also allows for the drama and romance to speak for themselves. The story like Stone Flower is essentially a simple fairy-tale, the fairy tale elements are recognisable and have a real enchantment to them while never doing so in a complicated way, and the romantic elements are genuinely touching and don't bog the film down in any way. Emotionally Scarlet Sails is really one of Ptushko's most beautiful, mainly because the romantic elements are so well done. It also helps that the characters are so easy to identify with, and that Scarlet Sails with two outstanding lead performances is for me is the best-acted Ptushko film. In conclusion, one of Ptushko's best and a personal favourite as of now. 10/10 Bethany Cox
