Oustanding masterpiece
2 June 2012 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

I saw this magnificent short in the third volume of the "Masters of Russian Animation" collection.

"Cabaret" it's such an incredible film. Loosely inspired in some plays from the Spanish author Federico Garcia Lorca("The Puppet Play of Don Cristóbal", "The Billy-Club Puppets" and "Doña Rosita the Spinster"), this short does an incredibly job capturing all the poetry from those literary works, adding a new level of beauty to them by the art of puppetry and stop-motion animation.

"Cabaret" starts as a bizarre comedy filled with many extravagances, then, it quickly evolves into a heart-breaking (But at the same time, captivating) tragedy, filled with a breathtaking lyricism that leads into a memorable ending, having some of the most beautiful lines that have been ever spoken in any animated film.

This is an astonishing, life-changing work of art. Words are short to describe the greatness of this.
