great animated short and true reflection of its time
16 May 2001 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

The animated film is a short story of a birthday celebration. Some guy invited his friends...However we don't see any of the characters - we only see the objects move. Moving chairs, moving forks and spoons, glasses with drinks, glasses and cigarettes etc. We hear conversations...The end of it all is the sight of ruined tableware, broken glasses...and the card flying off the dresser. The main character's mother, who ,we assume, has not seen her son in ages, wishes her son a very happy birthday.

The film is the product of its time- anti-alcoholism reforms started by Gorbachev found its way and had been reflected in Soviet cinema at the time.

However, what makes this film distinctive is a unique way it was filmed. It reminds us of movies about an invisible man and, yet it is totally original.
