This is one of the best Soviet animation films. It wonderfully parodies the styles of film in the respective countries. You don’t need to know any Russian to watch it. (There’s very little dialogue in it, and the version on YouTube has translation for all of it! Thank you, whoever you are.) I don’t need to add much more, you can read the rest in Wikipedia.
This film was shown very often on the Soviet TV. After i saw it many times, the censorship was quietly lifted from the final part, which parodies Soviet crime comedies and i remember very well how surprised i was when i saw it for the first time.
