Left in charge of her little brother as her parents go out, Mashenka leaves him alone for a little while. He get's abducted by geese-swans in service of the witch Baba-Yaga
10 July 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

One of the greatest fairytale animations of it's era. In a classic fairytale structure, somewhere in between the Grimm fairy tales "Hansl & Gretl" ( Witch wanting to eat the brother) and "Frau Holle" (Girl getting rewarded for helping an oven, an apple-tree etc.)

Left in charge of her little brother as her parents go to town, Mashenka leaves him alone for a little while to play with her friends. The little boy get's abducted by a group of geese-swans in service of the witch Baba-Yaga Mashenka set's out to free him, and receives help from an oven, a brook, an apple-tree and later a hedgehog

The IMDb wrongly credits Ivan Ivanov-Vano for the co-direction, but it's co-directed by Albert Ivanov, next to Alexandra Snezhko-Blotskaya. Unfortunately the IMDb is very incomplete and unreliable for Russian animation. Ivan was working at " The stranger's voice" at the time.

See http://www.animator.ru/db/?ver=eng&p=show_film&fid=2982. for the correct credits.
