This is one of those Eastern productions which teach, like noone in West, perseverance, altruism, goodwill lessons. As long as there's no plot of the cartoon in this page, I'll make a brief introduction of it: It's a story about an orphan girl that, due to a reward offered by the country's princess, is forced by his stepmother to look, all by herself, a flower that blossoms only, of course, in spring, the galantus. If I tell more, I'd spoil the whole role. This motion picture is a rare combination of an old anime-style cartoon telling a russian tale (Nothing with absurdly big eyes, don't worry about that). Besides story development makes me jump to this conclusion, there's also the way characters were developed. Only the main character seems to have a name; the others are like generalized brands of people from a time; these don't even get a name. At the beginning of the picture, an image of, apparently, the tale's writer is shown, but I can't be sure of that as long as I don't speak russian. Overall, at a first glance, it's a production with appeal for kids only, but a more accurate look could make you change your mind.
