I'm Done (Russian: Я больше не буду, Ukrainian: Я більше не буду[1], Romanized: Ya bolshe ne budu) is a 1975 Soviet musical comedy film that was directed by Yevgeni Sherstobitov and produced by Dovzhenko Film Studio. The film was theatrically released on August 23rd, 1976[2].


The boy Vova summons the wizard and asks him to find a friend who looks like him. So a man appears in the apartment, both in appearance and in character, similar to Vova. During this time, Vova's double (who received the title of "Vova II") got into a fight with the real Vova, took the ball from a girl, caused a traffic jam on the city street, and misbehaved in the zoo where he went with the girl Lyalya. The actions of the double helped Vova understand a lot about himself when he saw himself from the outside. He asks the wizard to return "Vova II" to the portrait frame.
