Description:

In an alternative future where Japan won the Second World War while allied with Russia, a speed-skating match is held between Russia's and Japan's champions.

The film intentionally plays with the concepts of dualism and absurdity, and is thematically related to Japanese director Akira Kurosawa's 1950 film Rashomon. A decent Russian-language analysis of it can be read here. A few words about the film have also been written in the book "Animation: A World History: Volume III" (p.196).
