Kin-Dza-Dza is a movie.
Directed by Georgi Daneliya, filmed in Russia in 1986. Some people believe it's the best Russian sci-fi. It's a cult futuristic movie with the awesome sense of humor. It's like an extreme magic mirror of our world.

Two humans (Dyadya Vova and Skripach) accidentally found themselves on another planet after pushing the wrong button on the strange device in the hand of an odd looking alien. Planet "Plyuk" in the galaxy "Kin-Dza-Dza" looks like a desert. All the aliens look exactly like humans, and can understand Russian, because they can read thoughts, their language is limited to a few words, however. The whole paradox of Plyuk is that their civilization is much more advanced than ours in time and space traveling, weaponry and so on, but totally barbarian in the social way. There is a special (and only) way to identify two groups of creatures (something like races) by pointing a little device on the person, green light - "Chitlanin" (good), orange - "Patsak" (bad). The most valued thing on the planet is matches. Dyadya Vova and Skripach, have a long and dangerous journey in order to get home...
