Splendid Russian animation
28 August 2013 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Sure the ending is on the predictable side, but other than that Dobrynya Nikitich I Zmey Gorynych is really splendid. The animation is beautifully crafted, the drawing was clearly done with care and the colours and backgrounds has a look that is not too simple and not too flashy. The music has a great deal of charm and excitement, perfect for conveying both fantasy and adventure and distinctively Russian. What there is of the dancing on screen is fluidly done and very authentic. Also much to like is the wonderfully ironic humour and the witty visual jokes, the dialogue is humorous and doesn't resort to being undeveloped or distasteful. Of course the story is not much new, but the humour helps to make it fresh, it is well-paced and it is a charming story that has touches of irony as well as that Russian fairy-tale feel at its most classic. The characters are very engaging and bring the story forward, not feeling superfluous to it in any way. The voice acting is very good, noble with a touch of theatricality(though not in overload). All in all, a splendid Russian animated film and well worth looking out for. 9/10 Bethany Cox
