The Very Same Munchhausen - Soviet art of the two-part TV movie in 1979, filmed at the Studio "Mosfilm" commissioned by Central television of the USSR. The script Grigory Gorin created at the remote based on the works of Rudolf Erich the Raspe about the adventures of Baron Munchausen. The film premiered on 1 January 1980, DH Soviet Union.
Literary source material for the script was the play by Grigory Gorin "the Most truthful", which was a success in the theater of the Soviet Army (Munchausen — Vladimir Zeldin). Mark Zakharov very much and he decided to move it to the television screen. In the course of work on the script of the play was seriously reworked and changed much compared to the theatrical version. Music by Alexey Rybnikov also was originally written for the play.

The film takes place in Germany (according to the chronology of the plot in 1779).

The film was shot in Germany, in the socialist part — GDR (real Munchausen lived near Hanover in Bodenwerder, located on the territory of the capitalist FRG). To organize the shooting on the territory of a friendly socialist GDR was much easier, and therefore shooting steel street Wernigerode, had "authentic" look and almost not affected during the war. The extras and the episodes have involved German actors and citizens.

Here lives in Germany is the most honest man, the Baron Munchausen. And everyone just takes it as a storyteller, living in a fantasy world. Only now everything he says is true.

Munchausen lives in his castle with a charming girl Martha. They have long been thinking about the wedding, but there is one problem: the Baron is married. In his youth, he was by the will of the parents from purely practical considerations, married to Jacobini background Dutten with which he was never associated tender feelings. She lives alone, with an adult son Theophilus. Munchausen seeking a divorce. Authorization may be given only a Duke, but a prose writer jakobine and her lover energetic Henry Raskopf (Abdulov) strongly oppose it.

The way it happens — by signing the divorce papers, Munchausen wrote in the column "number" of 32 may — according to his calculations, in a calendar error had crept in, and this year should be another one day. But the ideas and the astronomical observations of Baron do not matter, and all take his actions as another challenge to public order. There is a scandal. The court, deeming himself insulted, refuses to approve the divorce. From Baron require the abdication: it must admit all their stories are empty fantasies, in writing, the points to abandon all that he wrote and spoke. Friends, servants, Mar — all persuade the Baron to obey.

And he obeys. And "dying." Becomes a normal florist - Muller. "To be Muller in Germany is to be Ivanov in Russia."

And amazing. From the living troublemaker Baron became a dead celebrity prose writer jakobine publishes "the adventures of Baron". The memoirs of Baron not just edited — they are embellished and complemented by outright fabrications. About Munchausen sing songs in restaurants and draw pictures. It is called "a great man, misunderstood by contemporaries", and "32nd of may" (the day of the 3-year anniversary of his death) on the main square of the city opened a monument to the Baron.

Not warzaw lies around him, Baron Munchausen decides to rise again.

And it wants to send a cannon on the moon. To check.

And he's going to the moon, uttering his famous words:

I understand what your trouble: you are too serious! An intelligent face is not a sign of intelligence, gentlemen. All stupidity on earth are done with this expression. Smile, gentlemen! Smile!

Monument to Oleg Yankovsky in the form of Munchausen (Saratov)

Great movie. Great actors. Jokes, puns, aphorisms. A bit of madness and absurdity.

For me, the film resonates with the "Ordinary miracle". These two films form a kind of dilogy.  The Baron is a little older, moved with Martha from the castle, to a distant estate and became a Magician.

Sorry for the errors, rudeness and stupidity. It's not me, this online translator. Really convenient?
