Based on the folksy verse-novel written by Leonid Filatov.

Watching the film through this website seems to not be possible currently. Press the "Click here" link above for instructions on how to watch it with the subtitles.




I still think that the subtitles of Soldier Fedot (both movie and cartoon) and Film-Film-Film are Birubir's works. He was the first person to put Russian films with English subtitles on the Internet and virtually "dominated" it within a few years.

I'm not sure about the other one, but for this one, I went with the names that were in the subtitles themselves - it seems that Boris Bulgakov did the Russian transcription, and Alec Vagapov the English translation. Maybe one of those is birubir's real name. Note that birubir was the one who uploaded the subtitles (both ru and en) to in Feb 2009. If he'd wanted to change the names, he could have.

However, I watched this film at a film festival when it came out, and I remember that the English subtitles were quite good - I think the translation was the same as the one here. So possibly these very subs are the official ones.



Birubir seems to be a professional translator, because he provides mostly Soviet and Russian films of high artistic quality, while the animation side is small but all of them are award-winning films (for example: A Story of a Crime). Therefore, it would be a pity if he is no longer in this world.
