Russian Animation on YouTube

Above is a capture from Russian stop motion animation, "Old House",
based on a Hans Christian-Andersen Tale, directed by Irina Sobinova-Kassil.

This image is from the astonishing paint-on-glass film,
"СОН СМЕШНОГО ЧЕЛОВЕКА" by Alexander Petrov / Петров

(1992) based on the short story

"The Dream of a Ridiculous Man" By Dostoevsky

this film stirs memories of the intensity I felt when I first read

Dostoevsky in translation as a teenager:

Many more wonderful Russian animated
films here:

Early scene from the celebrated "Tale of Tales" (1979) by Yuri Norstein.
