Small piece of animated cinema
8 February 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Bazaar ("The Market") is the name given to the only surviving piece of "The Tale of the Priest and of his Workman Balda", a soviet animated film of the 30s based on a poem by Aleksandr Pushkin. The film never been completed: it got destroyed in WWII.

What remains is a small piece where characters sings in a market. But really, it is sufficient to consider it quite a great, great work of animation. Yes it is hard to judge something this short, but the animation is of incredible quality, and the design of the visuals is out of this world. Not a single animated movie looked like this until decades later. The music is by Shostakovich.

It was later remade in the 40s. But then Stalin's Soviet Realism dictated the look of animated movies in Soviet Union until the 60s so it looks absolutely not like this wild piece of cinema.

It may be quite hard to get to see a surviving piece of a unfinished soviet animated film of the 30s, but this little film could be of great inspiration to today's animators.
