Baba Yaga

Synopsis: A long time ago a splendid deer with golden antlers lived in the woods, always protecting the poor and weak and disdaining evil. In a little village nearby the woods widow Yevdokya lived with her twin daughters Mashenka and Dashenka, her son and her old father. One day the girls observe robbers hunting the deer. Shortly after they are lured into the woods by forest spirits. Infuriated about their presence, witch Baba Yaga turns them into fawns. Meanwhile, Yevdokya searches for her daughters. For protecting the deer of robbers she gets a magical ring to protect her from danger. The deer advises her to set off to the red sun or the clear moon. But both cannot reach the magic woods with their light. Finally, the boy accompanied by his cat goes in search for sisters and mother.

I think the Indian minority problem

is the closest we get to Vietnam.

What do you mean? It's

happening here. It's not over there.

No, no, but

look. The boys coming back-

Well, Guido,

you've proven something.

You really have demonstrated in your strip

that even funnies can be revolutionary.

Of course. Even Snoopy

in his own way is antiestablishment.

They reach very few people,

and those people already know

everything and they're in agreement.

Ah, what race is that, darling?

Oh, God, what a race.

Sandro let me try out the Suzuki.

Yeah, I admit it.

We had one hell of a ride.

You're a dear.

I want to photograph you

nude in a field ofwheat.

Okay. We'll talk about it.

Thanks for the chicken.

Oh, are you drunk?

Oh, brother.

Valentina Rosselli-

she is a photographer.

Ciao, Arno.


A photographer?

Only publicity,

fashion, art, politics and news.

Haven't you ever heard

of Cartier-Bresson?

Sure. Cartier-Bresson.

It's a pseudonym.

Her real name is Valentina.

Well, look. Your only costs are your india

ink, and you can get that cheap enough.

But try filming a motion picture, and then

you'll really see what heavy costs are.

Look at Godard.

That guy makes a good example.

He proved that it isn't necessary-

Ah, Godard is Godard. What do

you think about it, Valentina?

Your guru hasn't done anything

of merit since Pierrot le Fou.

I'd much rather see Laurel and Hardy.

You can expect a laugh.

Is that all you like do

is laugh?

Are you going back to Milan tonight?

Yes, with Guido, if I can tear

him away from his comic books.

Would you give me a ride downtown?

Yes. But it's a sports car.

Ifyou don't mind sitting on Arno's knees.

No, I want to walk.

But why? I haven't

done anything, have I?

Because I feel like walking.

Thanks for the offer.

Thanks for the ride, Guido.

Ciao. Ciao, Valentina.

Ciao, Arno.

Wait for me.

I'll be right back.

Look, be reasonable, will you? It'll

take you a half hour to get home on foot,

and it's already 3:00.

That's the nicest time of the day.

Foggiest time of the night.

I know, but fog turns me on, okay?

Is that the only thing

that turns you on?

I better go with you.

You shouldn't be alone at night.

Listen, Arno.

I don't feel like making love

with you... tonight.

Good night, Arno.

And go straight home!

A growing boy like you

needs his sleep.


Hey, Arno!

Your taxi's waiting.

Well, are you sure

you're ready?

I don't know if I'll

ever be ready for that chick.

Well, hello there, doggy.

And what are you doing out so late?

You should be home in bed.

What a strange mark.

Funny little thing.

What a funny ragamuffin

you are.

Good night, little dog.

Look out!


I'm very distressed.

It's all right.

I don't understand

what happened.

It's nothing. It's my fault really.

I saw this little dog

in the middle of the st-

Come. Get in the car.

I'll drive you home.

Really, it isn't necessary. I live nearby.


Why, it's the least I can do

after the shock I've given you.

I won't take no for an answer.

All right.

It wasn't the dog.

What did you say?

I was driving too fast.

I had to. I knew that something

was about to happen.

Our meeting was preordained.

How did you know

this is where I live?

There are many things

that you'll want to know, my dear.

But not now.

Perhaps I'll be able to...

explain them to you... later.

But first- first I must be sure.

- Allow me.

- What-

Ooh. I apologize.

But I need a personal object ofyours.

Be assured that I'll return it

to you tomorrow.

Good night, my dear.

And don't forget my name.
