This clip from 1966 is about a bureaucrat who ends up traveling around the world while following up on what looks like a simple assignment.
The premise gives the filmmakers an opportunity to shift through a variety of artistic styles, and the narrative is basically an excuse for the experiments in tone and perspective.

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.
