SOVIET ANIMATION: "Hedgehog in the Fog" (1975) by Yuriy Norshteyn

Friendly little hedgehog meets not so friendly owl in Hedgehog in the Fog (1975)

Everyone knows that the avante garde of revolutionary Russia produced wicked collage art and montage film. But few in the West know about another outcrop of their constructivist experimentation: puppet animation.

It is a delicate stop motion style that was perfected in the early years of the USSR. Banned by Stalin, it experienced a renaissance in the 60s, climaxing with a handful of films in the 70s, particularly Norshteyn's Hedgehog in the Fog (1975).

Regularly ranked internationally as one of the best animated films of all time, it's followers include contemporary animation maverick Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle), who rates it as one of his favorite films.

Experience ten minutes of dreamy magic with an inquisitive little hedgehog on the edge of the unknown:

Howl's Moving Castle contains very clever elements. No wonder Hayao Miyazaki would like "Hedgehog in the Fog". Thanks for broadening my horizon!

Must see! Love for hedgehogs is unlimited!

I've always liked these Russian stop motion animations. Kol Belov's animations always reminds me of them nowadays.
