An American cat tries to help a Russian peasant bloke emigrate from his mudhole country to America, but they get no further than France before crashing to Earth... based on the traditional fairy tale with a political 1990s twist.

An interesting snapshot of the mentality of that particular era, with lots of humour. The cat speaks only English and the man speaks only Russian. The French nobility speak only French, while count Herr Kaput speaks only German. The subtitles translate only the Russian dialogue (though strictly speaking, it is not really necessary), and transcribe most of the French and German.

The second video is from Bardin's own Youtube channel, but the colours in it are not as good.

Won a number of awards in 1996-7: the Grand Prix in London, and the Jury Prize in Annecy, Hiroshima, Bourg-en-Bresse and Espinho).
