    • Synopsis
    • Released in 1986, as the Soviet Union was approaching the end of its run, Georgiy Daneliya's Kin Dza Dza became something of a cult phenomenon. A sci-fi comedy that catapults an odd couple - a construction worker and a music student - to a far off planet. The film has a large and loyal following thanks to its clever comedy and satiric elements. It's a film that's never really gone away and now it's coming back in animated form.
      The story is simple enough to follow - the human protagonists foolishly fiddle with an alien transportation device and are flung to a far off planet from which they’re trying to find their way home. The planet Pluk is an alien world of sand, the inhabitants of which are divided into two categories (pacakov and plukan), a simple lightning match is of an unbelievable value, and people meet and greet each other by the color of their pants.
      The feature animation KOO! Kin-dza-dza was released in Russia in February 2013 and grossed more than $800 000 in local theatres.
