Do you want to enjoy the wonders of Walt Disney's Bambi, but can't watch the movie because you live on the other side of the Iron Curton? Don;t worry, the Russians have answered your question by making a live action version of Felix Salten's classic tale.
I could not believe what I saw when I looked at the part of the wikipedia page of Bambi about the movie versions of this story. Like everyone on the planet, I used to know that there are only two films based of Salten's 1923 book: The 1942 animated classic by Walt Disney, and the 2006 direct to video midquel (Bambi 2) by Disneytoon studios. I have heard of Russian Cold War era versions of films and story's of the west part of the Iron Curton, but not from a version of this story.
The story is not based of the Disney version, but more from the Salten version (atleast from what I can understand, because the film was in Russian), and uses both live action and real animals (deer, rabbits, squeals). That is for me confusing, because that would make "Men" hunting for men.
There is not much to say about this movie. Skip it and watch the Disney version, or read the original book by Felix Salten.
