This adaptation of Twain's masterpiece still is absolutely warm without being completely married to retelling the book line by line. Despite being on the other side of the world, the tone and the feel is lovingly authentic while still giving taste of the Soviet Georgian culture.
it is a beautiful adaptation. because it has many of virtues who defines Soviet cinema but, in same measure, translate in image a classic book in a courageous-seductive- uncommon manner. Roman Madyanov is a different Huck. not very close by original but good choice for the childhood wisdom. it is a comedy and an adventure film. but it can not be reduced at this status for the science to explore the nuances of book in inspired style. for the images. maybe, for language. because, adaptation of an American novel, it is a pure Russian film. the melancholic slices, the dialogs, the landscapes, the final, all is demonstration of a great cinema who can give the best picture about the geography of feelings and emotions.
