A wacky retelling of the Russian Folktale
19 June 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Funny, interesting, and imaginative are the qualities of

this movie!!! This version of the Russian Folktale is extremely funny as it is also very touching. Robin Williams does a great job of making the characters extremely creative.

Henrik Drescher's illustrations are so full of life and bizarreness that it gives the movie an edgy but exciting and touching mood on the story. The story is an instant classic to the children as well as the adults.

The adults will laugh at some of the humor this movie has while the children will enjoy the drawings and the light-humored tone of this story. This is a story that will remain in the hearts of everyone who sees this new version of the famous Russian Folktale.
