This clip is from a 1989 short film directed by Yelena Gavrilko who was one of the new wave of young directors to emerge in the 80s. All of Gavrilko's films are based on folk tales and address non-traditional relationships. This is a surrealistic view of a poignant and lonely relationship between a fisherman and his fish.

This film can be watched in its entirety on the Masters Of Russian Animation DVD set - an extraordinary collection of Russia's most important animated short films by Russia's world renowned directors.
