and, maybe, it is its precious virtue. because it has the gift to be the favorite of each age. for the child - the colors and the fluidity of animation and the simple , honest Ivanushka and his good friend , the little magic, loyal horse are the pillars for joy. for the adult - the Russian cultural references, the waves remembering the Japanese stamp, the costumes and buildings and feast and the new Ivanushka from the end and the Tsar and, sure, the ...horses. the music, the young daughter of the Moon, the dances and the spirit and emotions from the reading of the book by Pyotr Ershov.the last detail, across decades, remains, for me, the most precious virtue of the film.
