Banya (Bath) 1962

I discovered a raw torrent for a Soviet stop motion film from 1962. It's directed by Anatoliy Karanovich and Sergei Yutkevich. It's the sort of enveloping satire you've come to expect from the USSR, beauracrats, stagnancy and ignorance. Broad characters on a very social theme with nationalistic overtones. That's the description on Animator.ru. I can't comment on it too much, not knowing the language. I'd downloaded the first part to see what the film was like.

There's the link. I wasn't able to rip the photo I wanted off the web. I'll have to do that tomorrow.
