One of the best animations shorts I have ever seen
Le Nez/The Nose(1963) is a brilliant cartoon that has been overlooked today. The story is short but fascinating to watch. Based on the short story by the great Russian author, Nikolai Gogol, this cartoon retains all of the story's humor and surrealness. Le Nez(1963) is probably the best adaption of a Gogol story in the history of cinema. There will be a feature length live feature version of The Nose by the director of Black Cat, White Cat sometime next year. The direction by Alexander Alexeieff is fantastic and creative.
