Spadla z oblakov

The best children movie I’ve seen was from the former Czechoslovakia, “Maika – Cô bé từ trên trời rơi xuống“, which was based on a 1967 Czech children book. Here are the titles in various languages, mostly from countries under communism during the cold war:

  • Slovak: Spadla z oblakov (original language)
  • Russian: Приключения в каникулы
  • German: Sie kam aus dem All
  • English: She Came Out of the Blue Sky
  • Polish: Majka z Kosmosu/Spadła z obłoków
  • Norwegian (Nynorsk): Majka – jenta frå verdsrommet
  • Vietnamese: Maika – Cô Bé Từ Trên Trời Rơi Xuống
  • Hungarian: Csillagok küldötte
  • Bulgarian: Паднала от облаците
  • Spanish: Mayka, La Niña del Espacio
