Mark Twain and little more
25 May 2014 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

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.
