Description:

In this animated philosophical parable, a human life is portrayed as a coin-operated carnival machine exhibit; a game in which there may be no second chances...

A few words about the film from the director can be read here (in Russian) and some photographs from an exhibit of the film's puppets and artwork can be seen here.

The title "Атракцiон" is a little difficult to translate into English. The dictionary translation of the word is "spectacular circus or variety number" or "a device for entertainment in places of public festivities". The similar-sounding English word "Attraction" can include either of those two meanings as well (more the first than the second, though), but also has some more "primary" additional meanings that the Ukrainian word does not have. Maybe a word such as "Exhibit" would be less ambiguous.

A good-quality copy can also be watched on MEGOGO.
