A USSR-made violent farcical yet quite faithful adaptation of the famous Robert Louis Stevenson's book that combines animated sequences with live action parts. This film covers the second half of the book. Part 1 came out in 1986.
"Maugli. Poslednyaya okhota Akely" is the third of five installments from the Soviet Mowgli series from the late 1960s / early 1970s. The protagonist has further grown up here. the first 10 minutes are mostly about him getting closer friends with Kha and meeting another snake, a white cobra, who provides him with a strong weapon. The second half is about those we are familiar with already from the previous entries. The wolf leader goes missing and Mowgli has two fateful encounters, one with a young woman, one with Shir Khan. There is some plot development in here that is not part of the American animated film, which makes the watch a here a bit unusual, but not less interesting. It is certainly worth seeing.
