from a lost time
24 September 2016 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

its music. the emotions. the characters. and the fragments from the book. for few generations from the East, "The Adventures of Buratino" remains one of the most important memories from childhood. a kind of embroidery of feelings who has a lot of similarities with the circus show or with the games in backyard but who preserves, against the passing decades, its fresh flavor. the face and the voice of Dmitry Iosifov, the terrible huge Vladimir Etush as Karabas - Barabas, Arlekino and Malvina, the cat and the fox, the poor Carlo and the last episode. all as gems from a box of secret treasure.it is almost impossible to describe the state, front to TV screen, in each Sunday, for see a new slice of well known adventures who are different by the reading pages. sure, only emotional memories of the child inside us. but important for this small detail. because " The Adventures of Buratino", more than example of Soviet cinematography, it is testimony about a period from the recent history.
