An eccentric comedy about how the Soviet ship "Evgeniy Onegin" brought tigers and lions to the zoo, and the monkey presented to the team opened the cages and released the predators onto the deck. But in the team turned out to be a sweet and modest barmaid, Marianne, who loved and understood animals very much. The girl subjugated animals to her will - and after all kinds of adventures, tigers took their places in the cages.Written by
The scene in the bath with tiger was shot deception. Evgeniy Leonov was terribly afraid of the tiger and refused to appear with him. Actor was convinced that he would be separated by glass. But while Leonov was with foam on his face, it was slowly removed. So Evgeniy Leonov's fear on the screen was natural. See more »
it is one of my childhood films. a pure crazy comedy, perfect show out of politic, nice, seductive and interesting model for this kind of circus and cinema mixture. a ship, a travel and a great adventure. unique scenes and a drop of love story. a satire ? maybe. but one of the best. because it can be adaptation of Gulliver travels. sure, it is not really a surprise. the Soviet cinema was a good laboratory for this forms of experiment but it is little different by usual films. difference - its spirit. joy, emotion and moralistic end. a piece of innocence and delicate beauty. a film for entire family. and precious legacy from a great cinema school.
