Storyline

A philosophical and poetic portrait of the famous (or maybe infamous?) Baron Munchhausen. His crazy, yet very merriment, stories, views and behavior is what sets him apart from others. He becomes alienated from the society that failed to grasp his brilliance. In fact, his brilliance is what underlines the faults with the society itself. It's a beautiful yet tragic story that is filled with dense and intellectual dialogue. Written by DrStrangelife

A Russian masterpiece, one of the best
18 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Brilliant film in every way, every bit as great as Ordinary Miracle(also from Mark Zakharov) and perhaps even better. The costumes and sets are sumptuous and with a real Russian traditional feeling, somewhat like the quirky fairy-tale kind. The way The Very Same Munchhausen is shot is very appealingly done too, never too stage-bound or jerky. The music is beautiful too and very catchy, upbeat rhythmically sometimes but in a distinctive Russian style. The dialogue is extremely funny and witty coming from quite possibly one of the greatest scripts ever for a Russian film, even if you don't understand the language you can have somebody translate or try and find subtitles, that way you can see how funny and quotable it is. This is coming from somebody who isn't Russian but is studying it as part of her vocal and operatic studies course at university. The facial expressions of the actors, gestures and some of the antics of the main characters are though enough to give you a gist of what's going on. The story is always involving and filled with charm and hilarious antics. Underneath the immense fun you have watching The Very Same Munchhausen, there is also room for some seriousness in the messaging and it is done in a moving, heartfelt yet also uplifting way and not heavy-handed. The characters are very likable and engaging, and the acting shows all the actors giving their all. In particular Oleg Yankovsky who gives the performance of a life-time, he seems to be having a whale of a time but doesn't forget to bring some depth to the character. In regard to availability for The Very Same Munchhausen, the Ruslania website is a good bet(it's unavailable from Amazon at the moment), but oddly enough you can find the whole film on Youtube, providing it stays up, but titled with the Russian phonetic alphabet symbols and letters, Wikipedia can help as computer keyboards don't seem to have a lot of the symbols. In conclusion, a Russian masterpiece and one of the best Russian films ever seen by this viewer. If you can find the film, enjoy! 10/10 Bethany Cox
