Wonderful kids-movie. Stupid critics.
7 January 2005 | by (Under the Waves) – See all my reviews

I was quite surprised reading all those comments... I never thought people could be so incredibly ignorant...

This movie IS sweet & naive, but that's the point! The plot is full of Russian folklore elements which most of people here call "surrealism"... Every Russian kid knows about this "surreal" house on legs & Father Frost (which is analogical to santa, by the way). The plot is very simple & understandable, & the only circumstances that one can't understand the plot, is when one doesn't know Russian, or, on the other hand the most complicated plot he's ever seen is legally blonde...which is, of course a pity. I've watched this movie many times as a kid, & it's a sweet legend, recommended in case your kid is smart enough to understand a plot which is a bit more complex then porn movies.

I wonder how would those who criticized this film, comment on old Grimm's books, without seeing Disney's version, which is in most of the cases, far, very very far, from the original.

Also i would like to reply all those who complained about the lousy special effects- what did you expect? Matrix? The film was shot in '64! And for a '64 USSR kids movie it's great! So all of those who weren't smart enough for this movie should find out more about other cultures. The world is not just one big McDonald's. Thank god.

I gave it 9 out of 10. just for a better rating.
