The meeting between Buratino and Tortilla takes place in the middle of a pond. The scene was shot in November, with air temperature only 8 degrees Celsius (46 F). Dmitriy Iosifov, wearing only a skimp sleeveless jacket, was riding a huge leaf (supported by a car tire) and several times fell into the cold water. He was treated by rubbing alcohol over his body.

"Buratino" was Aleksey Tolstoy's retelling of Carlo Collodi's "Pinocchio". "Priklyucheniya Buratino" is a completely wacko movie version. Watching it, you probably wouldn't guess that it came from the Soviet Union - least of all from the stagnant Brezhnev era - but this is one of the coolest movies that I've ever seen. It's basically the story packed with hokey '70s music, especially the end scene. What a combination for something set in 1700s or 1800s Italy! One scene in particular reminds one of Jackie Chan's movies (you'll know it when you see it). They must have had fun making this movie.
Anyway, a lot of fun.
