Storyline

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 Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

An unique animation film
6 July 2005 | by jihorSee all my reviews

This picture uses animation mixed with several video clips featuring live actors. "Ostrov" is a spectacular and unique piece of animation, using progressive imagery and comics-like style. Movie is packed with intense music and is half-parody/comedy, half-screening of the R.L. Stevenson's "Treasure Island", also with parts of musical. It's also completely unforgettable thanks to voices of Armen Dzhigarkhanyan and Viktor Andriyenko. If you know Russian, you got to see this movie to know the mock style of it, because you can't see anything similar to "Ostrov" anywhere. If you are Russian and haven't seen it, I only wonder. 10/10
