Storyline

Adapted from the Andersen tale and played out in musical comedy mode, The Ugly Duckling is set in a farmyard where roosters, hens, ducks and geese live and lay eggs together. One fine day, a rooster discovers a giant egg behind the farmyard kingdom fence, and discreetly slips it into the clutch laid by his partner... Very soon, a cygnet emerges, but as he in no way resembles any of them he is immediately stigmatized by the whole farmyard, enduring humiliations and suspicion on the part of his feathered companions. But in the end he becomes a magnificent white swan. Written by Locarno Film Festival

Trivia

The bird feathers used in the film are real. When Garri Bardin said in a friendly conversation with Vladimir Shumeyko, ex-chairman of the Russian Federation Council, that he needed feathers for the film, Shumeyko killed his own rooster and gave its feathers to Bardin but it wasn't enough. The film was saved by businessman Andrey Razbrodin, who bought eight sacks of feathers sorted by size for the crew. The feathers were then painted according to sketches prepared by production designer Kirill Chelushkin. Both Shumeyko and Razbrodin are thanked in the credits of the film. See more »
