Hedgehog in the Fog

Hedgehog in the Fog or Ёжик в тумане (1975), is an incredible animated film. It's based on a Russian folk tale, and apparently many Russian children grew up and are familiar with it. It won several awards, including best animated film of all time at the Laputa International Animation festival in 2003. It's charming, evocative, and oddly eerie in a way--I'm absolutely enchanted. I'm also learning Russian this quarter, so it's nice to hear it spoken so fluently, and with accurate inflection. It's such an intricate and beautiful language.
