From Russia, with Pooh

Pooh has become such a corporate icon over the last few years (thanks primarily to Disney) that its hard to remember what an imagination encouraging creature he was in his original books (the great director Werner Herzog mentioned a Marshall Plan copy of Winnie is among his favorite possessions). However, this film does much to recall that kernel of wit the original story had, as well as allowing famous Russian animator Fyodor Khitruk to show his imagination as well. It's also strangely similar to a NES game, reminding me of a certain post.
