Do you know? ,my confidence in you is very small. You were only shaken out from somewhere. You don't come on your own feet. Instead of helping, you give me less room on my deathbed. The best thing would be if I scratch your eyes out.
Right,it's a disgrace. But now I'm a doctor. What am I supposed to do? Believe me, things are not easy for me either.

Usually Kafka or anything that can be referred to as Kafka-esque in/and film just works, as holds true with the animated short, A Country Doctor. A haunting adaption from Japanese artist Koji Yamammura. The animation is amazing, gripping, bizarre and startling, completely keeping with the dark, surreal tone of the film. It certainly posses the ability to rattle viewers like few animated films can. Animated shorts come and go, hell most feature length films of any kind come and go, but this haunting masterpiece will stay with you.
