    by Niffiwan

    1996, Belarusfilm. The film is mostly wordless, except for a song at the end. English and Russian subtitles are available (click on the above right of the video, and turn on CC). It is directed by Vladimir Petkevich. If you liked this film, you will also probably enjoy "Forest Tales", which was directed by his wife at about the same time, and "The Lodgers of an Old House" (directed by Aleksey Karayev). They can be found on this channel. (thank you julia2night for helping me make out the words of the song)
