Jiří Barta, usually known for stop motion animation, takes a different turn with "Poslední lup" ("The Last Theft" in English). The short film has a thief enter a cemetery and go into a crypt to snatch some goodies, but gets more than he bargained for. This movie has no stop motion animation as far as I can tell, opting instead for live action, but makes perceptive use of colors. As is Barta's style, it remains avant garde: no dialog, no discernible geographic location, and a plot that tests your attention span. But make no mistake about it, this is one that I recommend. I'll have to see if I can get my hands on the computer-animated film that Barta released in 2006.
