Loud Neighbors Can Drive You Temporarily Insane
16 July 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This Russian 20-minute animated film won several awards in various film festivals in 1962, including the San Francisco International Film Festival. I saw it on the DVD, "Masters of Russian Animation, Volume One." Fyodor Khitruk directed it.

This is the story on an average Joe kind of guy,, Vasiley Vaslievitch, a 47-year-old accountant, who suddenly leaps into a courtyard and conks to women over the head who were having a conversation. It doesn't say if he killed them, but they are at least knocked out. Suddenly, hundreds of people surround him, the cops come and the clock is set back 24 hours to "investigate" who this man is and why he would do such a thing.

The answer apparently was a night of no sleep, thanks to incredibly inconsiderate neighbors in the man's high-rise apartment (of which there are tons in Moscow, by the way.)

The artwork is great in this "cartoon." I loved the drawings and clothing on the all the characters was amazing. There were a lot of people in this one and they were fun to view, although the humor is here is very subtle.
