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 »
One of my childhood movie. After years, it is fresh and amusing, delicate and unique. Piece from Brezhnev era, it is a window. Not to a better world or to circles of dream but to basic truth and deep feelings. The story of puppet is known. Collodi first, than Tolstoy opens same door to adventures, moral lesson, magic and wisdom. But each adaptation has its soul crumbs. In this case - joy of game, honest tale , good actors and art of director to give force to atmosphere. Buratino is more than character but shadow of each child for who world is ball of questions. Like a very old toy in hand of teenager, this film is herald of lost moments whose embers still burning.
