An old sea captain and his student decide to take part in the international regatta. At the same time an amateur thief steals a statue of Aphrodite from Louvre and boards their yacht by mistake. A long, fun adventure is ahead.
"Vacation in Prostokvashino" is the second of three cartoons from this little series directed by Vladimir Popov and written by Eduard Uspenskiy. It runs for slightly under 20 minutes and is very Soviet. I am not only talking about the fact that it is in Russian, but the animation and humor are typical for these Eastern Europe animated films. The story is pretty bizarre, in terms of the bikini suit countdown, the hat shooting, the packet switch and some more scenes. And as usual, we have a couple animals speaking and behaving like humans. This was a common theme in Soviet animation. And in this one here, they even make fun of animals, which makes this even more ironic. As a whole, it is slightly inferior to the first of the series I guess, but still a decent watch. Thumbs up.
