"It’s difficult to single out the most outstanding cartoons, but there were definitely some memorable films. The atmospheric "Itsihitanantsu" tells about the atrocities of the spirit-werewolf who eventually grows into a global ethno-horror. The cartoon’s visual tools and appliances make the audience tremble no less than if they were watching a classic horror film.
Writer Maria Tereshchenko at kino-teatr.ru: "If a character of a feature film can afford a 10-minute monologue, explaining in detail what he feels at the moment, animated characters do not have such a luxury. All the information has to be squeezed in to a few gestures, glances or turn of the head. In the ideal cartoon, almost every shot counts. The director usually says: "These have to fit into 10 frames," and then adds, "No, 12 frames" (in 1 second there are 24 frames, so it is less than about 1/10 of a second)... ...The animations are often so saturated, that is not easy to understand them after the first viewing.
In "Itsihitanantsu" for example, by Natalia Ryss, the whole audience misses an important turn in the story. I think if I asked the director, "How so?" Natalia would be surprised, because the key scene takes as much as 20 seconds." These animated films are superb examples of short films and deserve to be seen.
