A sheep dances proudly in his southwestern landscape, until one day his wool is sheared and he is left naked. He's depressed and shy, until a cheerful jackalope comes along and shows him how to leap proudly and not to be ashamed.
As his town is flooded by water, an old man is forced to add additional levels onto his home with bricks (cubes) in order to stay dry. But when he accidentally drops his favorite smoking ... See full summary »
An animated retelling set to Prokofiev's suite. Peter is a slight lad, solitary, locked out of the woods by his protective grandfather, his only friend a duck. In town, he's bullied. When a wolf menaces the duck - as well as grandfather's fat cat and an ill-flying bird that Peter has befriended - Peter bravely tries to tree the wolf. Grandfather, the townspeople, and the hunters who have antagonized Peter figure in the dénouement. Written by
A Well-Done Stop Motion Animation Short of a Great Classic Story and Symphonic Piece!
This was an excellent short film and will have quality for all audiences to admire. In a mere 30 minutes, and without a single whisper of dialog the film, succeeds and encompasses a broad range of emotions, from laughing out loud to almost getting teary eyed. This is a movie that all audiences can enjoy. Kids will like it because the characters and their mannerisms are endearing and adults will like it because it will remind them of when they first heard the story. One of the best parts is that it is shorter than a full length feature so you or your children will not get ants in their pants from sitting still for so long. The visuals compliment the music rather well, the animation of faces convey emotions well and the drabness of the backgrounds and surroundings capture the harshness of Eastern Europe's brutal Winters. Sit back and enjoy this wonderful romp through one of the best pieces of classical music out there.
