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 »
Bu! A real "boo" in this family feature is a weird cricket and a malicious talking rat (its presence is simulated by a naughty shadow).
Ra! Or rather "rah"! The movie is one delicious treat for anybody who has ears to hear and eyes to see. Personally was quite enchanted by this movie in my early childhood. "Rah!" to Buratino ("A ya govor-r-r-ryu..."). "Rah!" to Karabas Barabas. "Rah!" to Kot Bazilio and Lisa Alisa. "Rah!" to Duremar. "Rah!" to everybody behind this cinema product.
Ti! Tea. After watching the film it is very important to have two or three cups of tea with some candies. To ponder on life's meaning is essential.
No! No disappointment during the film at all. Only crazy ecstasy ("Kva!").
Russian Buratino is a firestorm. His "birth" scene is one of the best in movie industry. Buratino is making good use of wooden sticks in combat. Bang, bang and Arlekin is down on the floor. At the same time he is no evil imp, but a good fellow and a reliable friend. Then goes Buratino's voice: it is very loud, high, and disturbing, with wonderfully pronounced "r-r-r-r" sounds.
What makes this movie so special is frantic music and songs. When watching some musical, there is a feeling that one or two good songs are wrapped into the rest pointless "add-ons". But here every song and every piece of music counts. The words are clever, too: "Na duraka ne nuzhen nozh..."
One musical piece, when the dolls are jumping into the old chest, is simply not of this world, though quite simple.
A few years ago there was a heavy metal composition "Buratino" on the "Radio of Russia" wave. This new version of the old tune sounded great, adding even more "toughness" to the perception of the original.
One of the IMDb reviewers compares "Buratino" heroes to Japanese anime characters. That's err... weird, but it has a point.
The highest mark for this one is all right. Thank you for attention.
