Storyline

Once upon a time there was a kind and quiet old man with a grumpy and domineering old woman. The old man had his own daughter - a modest, beautiful and hard-working Nastya, and the old woman had her own - envious, couch potato, and the plain woman Marfushka. Once in the forest, Nastya meets her fate, a young man Ivan, whose beauty and power conquered a lot of girlish hearts. But pride and rudeness played a cruel joke with him - in front of the frightened Nastenka, the forest sorcerer turns Ivan's beautiful face into a bearish face. So he stayed on until he learns to do good deeds. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

WHAT???
16 January 2003 | by pagrasSee all my reviews

People, I don't understand you. This movie is a very good fairy-tale and in my country it has become so popular that it runs on TV every year. Well, it usually runs on December 31rd, which indicates that people take it partly ironically, but the movie itself is a humorous caricature and I don't understand the arguements I see here. In fact, I couldn't imagine that MOROZKO could receive such bad reviews, if I didn't see it in my own eyes.

I don't know what they did of it in the United States, but I really don't think that the English version could get close to the original. It is simply unimaginable. On the other hand, it is true that the Czech dubbing of MOROZKO is excellent and it may overcome the Russian version.

In any case, if you don't know that Baba Yaga (a common inventary of Russian fairy-tales) lives in a house on the bird's legs (which every child in my country knows very well), then nobody can help you.
