A beautiful musical drama
19 September 2011 | by (Moscow) – See all my reviews

Definitely worth a watch even if the dialogue is in Russian. Subtitles could be obtained easily on-line. Even though the film does not strictly adhere to Anderson's original text, and there are many modifications to the plot, the retelling is refreshing with enchanting setting, costumes and acting, a feast for the eyes. Beautiful soundtrack and dance sequence. Do not expect many special effects since the film is old. Indeed, a treasure of the Russian-language cinema. Expect this to be a touching film which will move you and provokes your thinking. And by the way, the actor playing the Prince looked oddly like Zac Efron or Ian Somerhalder.
