Bits of found film and different types of animation illustrate a classic chase scene scenario: A woman is abducted and a man comes to her rescue, but during their escape they find themselves in the enemy's secret headquarters.
"Eine murul" is a 25-minute animated short film from almost 30 years ago and this one won writer and director Prrit Pärn a couple awards all over the world. But it really is just more strange than really good. If you know a bit about Soviet animation from the 20th century, then you will see a pattern in here and I am of course not talking about Winnie Pooh here or Cheburashka, but the films that are more for grown up audiences. We have nudity in here, violence and the whole thing is fairly mysterious. The title "Breakfast on the Grass" actually implies something pleasant and harmonic, but it has nothing to do with this film here. or I should maybe say "films" as this one includes several short films in one. Overall, not a particularly good or interesting watch. Stay away.
