Comedy, but very obvous political satire
Smart Man Nassredin easily penetrates into Bukhara Emir inner circle posing as Wise Man from Damasscus. He becomes Emir trusted advisor, and even convinces the tyrant to to relax the rule and release a lot of political prisoners (because stars favor this arrangement). Funny story. But, remember this movie was made in 1943 Russia - Could that be that Emir is the mirror image of Stalin? If that is so, moviemakers made an incredible bold movie for that time period. Wonder why political movie commissars missed that all the obvious references?
