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.
"Zima v Prostokvashino" or "Winter in Prostokvashino" is the third and
last installment of Popov and Uspenskiy's Uncle Fyodor short film
series. This one runs for under 16 minutes and came out in 1984, 6
years after the first and 4 years after the second. The title already
describes. it is the winter holidays and Fyodor and his family visit
their canine and feline friends out where it is really cold. I must say
I found this short film certainly fairly uninteresting, not on par with
the 2 previous installments. The music is not too memorable either and
I am referring to the very last scene with this. I am not too angry
that the series ended with this short film, maybe it was already one
too many. Still, if you really loved the first two, you can check this
one out as well, otherwise skip it. You will not be missing too much.
Not recommended unless you're a huge fan of what was before.
