The Enchanted Boy (Russian: Заколдованный мальчик, Zakoldovanyy malchik) is a 1955 Soviet/Russian traditionally animated feature film directed by Vladimir Polkovnikov and Aleksandra Snezhko-Blotskaya. It was produced at the Soyuzmultfilm studio in Moscow.

The film's image and sound were recently restored by the Russian company Krupnyy Plan, which released it on video and DVD packaged together with Cipollino, a 1961, 39-minute film directed by Boris Dyozhkin. No English-subtitled version has been released.

Plot[edit]

The film is an adaptation of The Wonderful Adventures of Nils by Selma Lagerlöf.

The naughty boy Nils, who delights in torturing animals, is bewitched by a tomte. Now shrunken to a small size and able to talk to animals, he flies across Lapland on the backs of wild geese. During these dangerous travels he does many noble deeds, and, at the same time, searches for the tomte who would take the spell away.
