Not even close to Gaidai's version of the great novel.
31 January 2005 | by (Russia.) – See all my reviews

This later version of Ilf and Petrov's book is really poor. I can't think of a worse actor for the role of Bender. Though Mironov is definitely a great actor his vision of Ostap is like comparing stupid Disney cartoons to Hotaru no Haka (Grave of the Fireflies). He is the worst Bender of Soviet Cinema (the new worst Ostap is Nikolai Fomenko...)

Though this version is almost twice as long as Gaidai's this one somehow manages to tell less than the earlier one! The necessary scenes are shortened while the unnecessary ones are unbelievably stretched and boring.

Waste of talent.

A Dissappoinment.

Watch this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065670/ Version and you will not regret it. And as a "sequel" try to watch Zolotoi Telenok with Yourski - he is the Best Ostap Bender ever.
