He calls himself Hassan Abdurrahman ibn Khottab, or in Russian style Khottabych. Grateful Khottabych is ready to fulfill any of Volka’s wishes. But it appears that Volka should use the powers of the genie carefully, for they can have undesirable results.User review:it seems be the right choice for understand the Soviet Union in “50. in same measure, it is an adorable children film, mixture of exoticism, political command, crumbs of fairy tale and the authentic charm of young actors. and this did it seductive. because the adventures of old genie preserves the fascination of mystery and young wise characters and good intentions, and the impact between worlds. and the political message is almost archaeological artifact, more funny but the story itself. maybe, it remains, first, a film for the East public. for its details who are source of special humor and nostalgia, memories and simple cinematographic tricks. in same measure, it has an universal message. and this did it interesting. and , maybe, for adult generations, adorable.
