This movie was a delight of my childhood. Of course, now,it seems to be a little old-fashioned, but I think a lot of American movies from 70s seems to be old-fashioned, too. Buratino is a very good fantasy, lots of humor, a very good music, a movie for harts, not like new-fashion fantasies with o lots of CGI but without any original idea. Soviet director, (as all authors from communist Europe) prefer fairy tales because it was hard to make movies about reality in a communist country, but in fairy tales directors were be able to do almost everything they wanted, because they said to censorship that it is just a fairy tale, nothing wrong for communism.
