A wonderful film. Made in Moscow in 1975. Directed by Yuriy Norshteyn and written by Sergei Grigoryevich Kozlov. The fog effect was achieved (stop reading now if you don't like to know how things were done) placing very thin paper over the scene. When the scene required more fog, the paper was lifted towards the camera, frame by frame allowing the animator to completely envelope the scene in fog.

Norshteyn is presently working on a feature film called "The Overcoat", which he started back in 1981, of which 25 minutes currently exists.
