| The book is a 100 times better than the film
This film was based very loosely on the classic Russian historical novel written by talented author Nikolai Grigorevich Smirnov and tells an amazing story of how a Russian boy travels around the globe by accident during the early Soviet years, returning to Russia to combine Russian and Western culture in a remarkable, never predictable journey. This musical version of it would make the author turn in his grave. Not only does it omit huge, important portions of the whole story, many parts in the film are the director's own ideas, and they don't contribute in any meaningful way. Honestly, making a movie of this book would require something closer to the scale of War and Peace, time wise. The good news is that this book recently became available in English, so the non-Russian speaking world can finally experience this unique tale. Most book stores don't carry this title yet, but searching on a site like google will make finding it simple.
