classic comedy. humor at high level. crazy mixture of cinema and circus. and beautiful animals, courageous woman and hilarious characters. its virtue - for its time to represent something different by common propaganda tool. for today - fascinating show, delightful entertainment. but, more important, seal of Soviet cinema and its fight to propose a coherent message, clear image. because each scene is spectacular. because it has a lot of virtues who are far to define contemporary blockbusters. because, in the web of lions and tigers, the precise art of a great tradition is the answer to each new image. short, a memorable film. the flavor of many childhoods and the charming science to propose a great comedy.a film for entire family. because not only the smiles are its virtues but a convincing pledge for pure joy.
