Superb traditional animation merges The Wizard of Oz with Terry Gilliam's Brazil.
Two unlikely bedfellows, a classical cellist and an aspiring DJ, find themselves transported from Moscow to the alien world of Pluke, where they navigate a dystopian alien culture in a quest to return home. Georgian director Georgiy Daneliya revisits his 1986 live-action, cult sci-fi feature Kin-dza-dza, reimagining it in glorious drawn animation maintaining the charm and surrealism of the comedic original. Once a satire on the 1980s Soviet Union, it proves an interesting reinterpretation for the 21st century.
