Watching this film, I at times felt like watching a silly clown show,
most suitable for pre-schoolers. But at other times, it displayed witty
satire, be it the repertoire of Russian folk songs ("Kalinka" and
"Malinka"), philosophers debating the beginning and end of a wooden
stick, and a most hilarious (and unhelpful) fire brigade. A Baba Yaga
(witch) who was less impressing than in other Rou films.
At the center, we of course have a boy and a girl, who go through many tribulations. And a little goat who gets quite some screen time (and is worth it - involvement of animals seems to be standard in Rou films). Then there are several laughing-stock tsars: "Bones", the fire victim, the watery one, the one of the coast who sacrifices a virgin once a year to prevent inundation..
All in all, this is a very rich-textured story, cleared in Germany for age 0 and above, but an interesting watch for older persons as well. I was for instance quite moved when the watery tsar learned to read. A nice film, and so far away from Hollywood habits...
