Charles Le Clainche,
"One Night in one City" is a compilation of short stories that take place in a dark city, where strange beings had to deal with strange, surreal situations. I found this Czech animated film to be original, interesting and enjoyable. I liked all the characters, and I found the stories to be charming and funny(Despite the darkness of them) This movie has no dialogue, only music and sounds. In many aspects, this reminds me a lot to the animated film "Krysar"(The Pied Piper of Hamelin) but with a more light-hearted and optimistic tone. My favorite story was the first one, which is the best. But the others are quite interesting too. This movie deserves more appreciation and recognition. I recommend it to anyone.
