    • Synopsis
    • Created in a non-narrative style, the film is considered another Yuri Norstein's masterpiece.
      It employs free associations, the memories of childhood, and impressions what makes the visual memory, as the author calls it: traveling trains, falling leaves, Picasso's Minotaur, literary characters of Lorka, Neruda, and Pushkin, and classical Japanese graphic art interact in a two-dimensional plane of the film. In 1984, The Olympic Arts Festival in Los Angeles named Tale of Tales 'The Best Animated Film' of all Times.
