Hedgehog in the fog
hedgehog in the fog (yozhik v tumane - ёжик в тумане)
"Classic Russian animated short film from 1975. Based on a story by Sergei Kozlov, directed by Yuri Norstein. In 2003 'Hedgehog in the Fog' won the '№1 Animated film of all the time' at 'All time animation best 150 in Japan and Worldwide' contest in Tokyo, Japan."
What the symbolism of the bear cub and the hedgehog means is something to ponder but it's a beautiful film.
