this reminded me of the film Delicatessen http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101700/ by, Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet, disturbingly dark, fascinating and sweet.

Although the story line reminded me of our own puppeteer here in the US, the animator has to be Russian or Eastern European. I caught a whiff of Bulgakov and Kundera.

My first thought was -- this is a really postmodern take on the danse macabre. My second thought was -- I've been hanging around academes for way too long. But my third thought was an attempt to map the current situation in Iraq with the cartoon and the danse macabre.

Would the man arranging the dance be Death or Bush?

disturbing yet amazing. it reminded me of George Plimpton's work, except with more detailed shading and darker humor.

That was truly bizarre. The dancing scene was excellently animated though!

FIY Baginski is a polish artist, who also made "cathedra" (unfortunetly, he didnt win an oscar, but he was nominated). Cathedra is based on novel by polish sci-fi writer Jacek Dukaj...
