“Le retour” is a touching autobiographical animated short film directed by Natasha Chernysheva. The music is by Arman Chopikyan and the animation by Iouri Tcherenkov.
When we grow up we discover that the places and objects we knew before are much smaller than in our memory. The smell of my grandmother’s borscht returns the memory to the distant happy childhood.
