Boris Stepantsev's "Vovka v Tridevyatom tsarstve" is a lighthearted story about a schoolboy who'd rather live in a fantasy world, so the librarian clones him and sends him inside a storybook where he discovers that it's not all as easy as he presumed. I guess that one might interpret this cartoon as a look at the desire to escape from the modern world (also a theme in some of Terry Gilliam's movies). It's nothing special but still an enjoyable way to spend twenty minutes. My favorite characters were the guys from the casket who do everything according to their own understanding, leading to all sorts of screw-ups. Pretty fun.

PS: Vovka is a diminutive form of Vladimir.
