Старик и море [The Old Man and the Sea] (1999)

Director: Александр Петров (Aleksandr Petrov)
Runtime: 20 minutes
Language: English
Genre: Animation, Adventure

Based on the novella written by author Earnest Hemingway, this Russian short film features beautiful finger painted pastel oil paintings on glass animation by Aleksandr Petrov, the pioneer of the style. This film is a beautiful work of art for the two years of painstaking effort put in to the making of the animation. But the film isn't just visually impressive, Petrov also does a fantastic job of portraying the character's inner thoughts and feelings. There's one scene where the old man dozed off, and had a dream he and the marlin were brothers swimming together through the sky.
