The film was shot without stunt doubles. When mother would not allow Dmitri Iosifov to climb inside huge clay amphora, film producer asked the ten-year-old actor to help. Dmitry faked a tantrum demanding different food, and the scene was shot while mother was out to the grocery store. See more »
"Buratino" was Aleksey Tolstoy's retelling of Carlo Collodi's "Pinocchio". "Priklyucheniya Buratino" is a completely wacko movie version. Watching it, you probably wouldn't guess that it came from the Soviet Union - least of all from the stagnant Brezhnev era - but this is one of the coolest movies that I've ever seen. It's basically the story packed with hokey '70s music, especially the end scene. What a combination for something set in 1700s or 1800s Italy! One scene in particular reminds one of Jackie Chan's movies (you'll know it when you see it). They must have had fun making this movie.
Anyway, a lot of fun.
