Isn't the internet a wonderful thing? I just discovered this amazing Russian short called Mitten thanks to Vera Brosgol and the magic of Twitter this week. I fell in love.
This is the cutest short, guys!
I'll always have a soft spot for Soviet animation (Винни-Пух ANYONE?!), and this short is just... so... perfect! From start to finish. The character designs rock (her MOM!!), and I love how simple the ending is kept. None of the North American beat it over your head over and over crap. A simple, genuine, lovely short.
