Storyline

Residents of the village where the onion boy Cipollino lives, gathered on the market square for a solemn meeting with Prince Lemon who came to see them. In a crush that sprang from a large number of those gathered, Cipollino's father, by the name of Cipollone, accidentally stepped on the prince's leg and was put in prison, like a rebel and troublemaker.

a trip. more than a film. inside the universe of an age. in middle of a naive and charming and so simple universe. the world of Chipollino. friends, challenges, adventures. out of Disney universe, using the tradition of children literature as basic ingredient for Russian animation. after almost a half of century, it is not easy to say why this so simple animation remains seductive. maybe, for the science to be perfect refuge. or as slice from a time who becomes a far land, so different by contemporary universes. because, it is just a beautiful film. inspired by a lovely book. and good occasion. to an imaginary trip. in the universe of childhood.
