much better than other kid movie
5 May 2003 | by (montreal, quebec) – See all my reviews

yes those kind of fairy tales (he produced a lot) brought up by Alexander Row are very so funny and surrealist in a sense...i saw this movie and some other of his on tv, french-dubbed in family-oriented programs but his casting and humour is so odd... Could compare almost to Svankmajer. And in bonus, the movie is stuffed with russian songs, kinda traditionnal russian folk type of music. Much more authentic than modern pseudo-gypsy movies... not to miss 8/10
