As short as insignificant
26 July 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Antoshka" is a 2.5-minute animated short film from the Soviet Union in 1969. It was made by Leonid Nosyrev as a television production and it's about a little red-haired boy who keeps singing and is joined by a group of other children quickly afterward. This is certainly nowhere near the best what the Soviet Union had to offer in terms of animation. It's a little fun movie, but there is no depth or character development in here at all. Solid watch for children and for people trying to learn the Russian language, but everybody else can skip it really. I myself am glad it was that short and that's why I give it a thumbs-down. Not a failure and the animation and spirit ooze fun, but like I said, there is nothing really memorable about this 150-second film here.
