"Seasons" is one of the most beautiful and captivating animated shorts ever made. In only 9 minutes, Ivan Ivanov Vano and Yuriy Norshteyn (Director of great animated short films like "Hedgehog in the Fog" and "Tale of Tales") are able to shows us one of the most enchanting and wonderful worlds ever seen in the world of cinema.
Just like "Fantasia", here Ivanov-Vano and Norshteyn are able to turn classic music into animation. And the result is flawless, having a dream-like beauty without comparison. Every single frame of this short is a work of art, having the same level of perfection of Tchaikovsky's music used here. But personally, I don't think that somebody have to like classic music in order to see the greatness of this little masterpiece.
I highly recommend "Seasons" to anyone.
10/10 (I would give it 11 stars if I could)
