One of the very best animated films I've ever seen.Outrageoulsly funny, witty, a wonderful view of the decaying USSR, as well a a great technical and artistic achievement. A delight for all audiences, crammed with references to different animated films, popular songs, characters, politics and history. This is the product of a society where censorship was losing control and where the even more fierce market law was not enforced yet. Where are the wonderful artists who could still produce such gems (Yuri Norstein, Nazarov, etc.) A good collection of Masters of Russian animation was published, but it did not include Bardin's films. 'When will they ever be available on DVD ?
