Boys through the UK were auditioned for the dubbing of the film into English - but none were found suitable who could replicate an authentic sounding southern accent - so two women with husky voices were used to dub in the lines of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn See more »
This is Russian version of the famous Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn story filmed in 1981 by Odessa film studio starring Russian cinema's child star Fedja Stukov and others. I've seen many adaptions of the book on the screen but this one is the best by far. Not only the movie follows the book step by step, it's also very funny and entertaining. My whole family was laughing in tears! The movie is separated into 3 parts ( cuz it's pretty long, about 3h altogether)but it's length allows movie to be true to the book. I recommend this movie to everyone. It's fantastic retelling of Mark Twain book with wonderful roles from child actors!
