Kanikuly Bonifatsiya

Fyodor Khitruk Soviet Union, 1965

Kenji's rating of the film Boniface's Holiday

You don't need 3d and computers and fancy technique; the spirit of a film matters far more. Our lion-hearted hero, nonchalant master of the high wire, magician and juggler of equal panache, sets off by train and then ship in one of the most charming, delightful and brighty colourful little films you could wish to see.
