This is a clip from abounding in metaphors stop motion film telling a story of unusual love and the courage of commitment.

One of the first films directed by the late Vadim Kurchevsky. An experienced artist, he began work at Soyuzmultfilm in 1957as an art director in the studio's stop motion department. By the mid-'60s Soyuzmultfilm was already known internationally for stop motion films produced for children. Kurchevsky began to use these same techniques to address adult viewers and to make films about modern-day problems.

This film is from the Masters Of Russian Animation DVD set - an extraordinary collection of Russia's most important animated short films by Russia's world renowned directors.
