  • Summary:
    • It’s hailed by critics as one of the greatest animated films ever made, but somehow, this masterpiece remains an obscure and forgotten gem. Hedgehog in the Fog tells a rather simple story—a hedgehog is on his way to his friend’s place when, due to his curiosity, he gets lost in a dense fog and encounters all sorts of strange, terrifying creatures.
    • It may seem like a small tale, but it’s one that’s rich in symbolisms and filled with deeper meanings. A haunting, profound metaphor for routines and inquisitiveness, for friendship and for childhood, for the childlike wonder and for the fear of the unknown—for life.
    • Yuri Norstein’s animation is quite unique in that he uses only cut-outs and tracing paper—in conjunction with Mikhail Meerovich’s eerie musical score—to create this magical, surreal, dream-like world unlike any other that can be both frightening and full of wonder.
