Norstein, the forgotten


I'm very amazed that Norstein's work is very hard to found. He's for me one of the best animator from all times. He had made only 6 cartoons and oh god, I've the same feelings each time i watch one. Tales of the Tales is my favourite cartoon and even movie (if we say that a cartoon is a kind of movie...). It had win the "best animated film of all time" in Los Angeles in 1984 (if one of you can which festival it was i'll be happy to hear it...). Even if i think this is too much for this cartoon, I'm very amazed that an american jury gave this kind of price to a soviet movie, don't you think so? Must say that THIS IS A VERY GOOD CARTOON! I don't know why the medias had made a cross upon it.....

Rather late, but for what it's worth: it "was voted by a large international jury to be the greatest animated film of all time at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympiad of Animation, and again at the 2002 Zagreb World Festival of Animated Films" according to Wikipedia.
