A great movie, ONE of many classics of the late Soviet era...
One of the most influential movies of its day! I grew up with it even though it was released when I was less than one year old. I often think that this is EXACTLY how children's science fiction movies should be made: with as few special effects as possible. Somehow, when I see a poster for yet another science fiction blockbuster these days, I know it will bore the hell out of me. That the plot will be overshadowed by the hysterically loud and disorientating computer graphics and special effects.
In total disagreement with one of the previous commenters saying that "there weren't all that many movies made for kids available, and most of those weren't all that good"...This kind of comment demonstrates once again, very clearly, how the western audiences had no clue about what life was like in the Soviet Union. There were LOTS of high quality children's movies made in those days! Many of them became classics, just like "The Adventures of the Elektronic". I'd certainly watch this and other movies with my own kids.
