Storyline

Strange Russian fairy tale dealing with a boy and a girl who go through the strangest situations to be with one another.

Goofs

In the beginning, when Nastyenka pleases the sun to wait till she finishes the socks, the sun rises from the right side (west). Russia is situated on Northern hemisphere, so it's clear that the scene was actually shot during twilight and the sunrise is actually dusk played backwards. See more »

WHAT???
16 January 2003 | by (Czech republic) – See all my reviews

People, I don't understand you. This movie is a very good fairy-tale and in my country it has become so popular that it runs on TV every year. Well, it usually runs on December 31rd, which indicates that people take it partly ironically, but the movie itself is a humorous caricature and I don't understand the arguements I see here. In fact, I couldn't imagine that MOROZKO could receive such bad reviews, if I didn't see it in my own eyes.

I don't know what they did of it in the United States, but I really don't think that the English version could get close to the original. It is simply unimaginable. On the other hand, it is true that the Czech dubbing of MOROZKO is excellent and it may overcome the Russian version.

In any case, if you don't know that Baba Yaga (a common inventary of Russian fairy-tales) lives in a house on the bird's legs (which every child in my country knows very well), then nobody can help you.
