In this film, the animated scenes are interspersed with musical numbers and game scenes shot with the participation of actors and illustrating the events of the animation film or relating to certain problems related to the way pirates live: for example, greed, smoking or alcoholism. At the same time, the manner of filming of musical numbers and game episodes differs in different episodes: somewhere the image is colored, somewhere - black and white. One game scene mimics a silent film using intertitles, and in some episodes live footage is combined with animation.Written by

Perestroyka has cut the throat to making such movies in Russia
To avoid repeating the previous reviewer's, I will tell you my personal story about this movie. In the final song there is a verse line that goes like : "that's why the spectator loves this wonderful genre, our soul healer and balm for wounds". When I watched this movie at 15, although it became one of my favourite cartoons, I considered this line too pretentious. Because I treated this movie as low genre: all kind of fights, an unstopping succession of gags, known however to every schoolboy, hilarious music, lot's of humour and parody... Now it happened so, that I'm a 37 years old man have re-watched it, and, oh, really, it acted on me really like "balm for wounds". I watched the first scenes with bitter scepticism, but, very soon I discovered that I can not stop. What's the secret of this movie ? Don't know. But what I can say for sure, there is no another such movie. 10 of 10.
