    Russian animated feature: The Lost Letter (+English subtitles) 1945


    by Niffiwan

    1945, Soyuzmultfilm. First Soviet traditionally-animated feature (by some definitions). Based on the story by Nikolai Gogol about a Cossack who journeys to hell and back. Directed by the Brumberg sisters and Lamis Bredis. Perhaps the only example of more adult-oriented animation made at the time that was not political satire. Made more remarkable by the fact that it was made during a horrible war... "Propavshaya gramota". Пропавшая грамота.
