Hungary (MIFF 1974 )

The composition by Tchaikovsky commemorates the war fought against Napoleon. The film attempts, with the possibilities provided by the animated genre, to unite the period synthesis of the works of Tolstoy with the colours of the descriptive art of Turgenyev, and the visions of Dostoyevsky.
