Storyline

Aspiring young DJ Tolik and world-renowned cellist Vladimir Chizhov meet a barefoot man on a busy Moscow street. They press a button on a peculiar apparatus and teleport to the desert planet Pluke... The animated remake of the cult feature film Kin-dza-dza tells the story of the adventures of Tolik and Uncle Vova in way that is every bit as quirky and exciting. In the dune world of Pluke, people fall into two categories - Patsaks and Chatlanians. An ordinary match is the most precious valuable, and people are judged by the color of their pants.

This scene by scene remake of the original classic adds nothing new, but looses a whole lot in the animation. The characters, dialogue, sound effects and whole alien planet are still interchangeably similar to the original masterpiece, but what used to be a surrealistic satirical parody of our own society, is here drawn into something more reminiscent of the old Alf cartoons.

As it's exactly identical to the original, it's still a great story, and fans of the original will definitely enjoy a revisit to the wonderful desert planet of Pluke, but those who are unfamiliar with the story, are much better off seeking out the original. (At the current date, it's available on youtube in it's entirety.)

The 3D is a huge misstep though. For some reason the images flicker ever so slightly when there is movement in the screen, and even if it's almost unnoticeable, it was still bad enough that me and my company opted to take off our glasses, and switch back to 2D.
