True, [its] hustle and bustle sometimes feels like too much to take in at once, yet its heavy payload of literary quotations, philosophical argument and classical music is also perhaps an act of faith in an intelligent audience.

Khrzhanovsky's tone is too whimsical at times, and his points about repression too leaden, but that often happens when a cartoonist dabbles in live-action. Anyway, Khrzhanovsky's approach improves the material far more than it hinders.

Director Andrey Khrzhanovsky is one of Russia's slyest animators -- as anarchic as Terry Gilliam was in his Python prime.
