A short cartoon about real estate development, poverty, Christmas, suicide, and boxing. Black and white, silent (though with music and some sound effects). Could almost have been directed by Ivan Ivanov-Vano (the "patriarch of Soviet animation") in the 1930s.
But it's from 2004. And it assimilates itself so much into the visuals of the 1930s that technically I might call it almost perfect (and gave it 9/10, which is about the maximum I hand out for the best films I know, because nobody is perfect...).
If you can deal with the topics mentioned above, watch or get this little film (for instance from archive.org). It will take 5 minutes, 37 seconds of your time. For me, it was very well worth them. Thinking about it takes longer.
