The English title for this Yugoslavian cartoon is "Elegy". The film consists of a scene showing a guy in prison looking out into the yard below. Surprisingly, a red flower begins to grow and the prisoner's spirit begins to lift--he really seems to like the flower and it brightens up his life. But, when bugs and storms come, the man is despondent--and the flower dies. After the storms and snow pass, the flower soon re-appears and the man is released. What happens next is wonderfully cynical and it made me laugh! The film is very simply told with simple animation. However, despite it's apparent deficiencies, it's a nice little story and well worth seeing.
