Trivia

Boys through the UK were auditioned for the dubbing of the film into English - but none were found suitable who could replicate an authentic sounding southern accent - so two women with husky voices were used to dub in the lines of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn See more »

User Reviews

Most faithful Twain adaptation - from the USSR of all places
26 September 2005 | by GrainOfSaltSee all my reviews

It's ironic but true - although the Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn are an American classic of iconic status, it would be the old nemesis USSR to go down in history as the country of origin of their most faithful film adaptation. Almost all the story lines of the two books are told, and in a non-embellished fashion. While some may criticize its (lack of) pace, the careful storytelling makes this three hour TV-movie right especially for younger audiences. Precisely because this is not as high budget as some of the US versions, it is astonishing to watch how detailed the Mississippi towns were built in the Soviet Union (everything had to be built from scratch)! Try this one if you love the book and don't mind the harsh realism of the story.
