Description:

A warrior travels to battle a body-switching demon.

At the 15th Open Russian Festival of Animated Film, this film garnered no awards and was just 10th in the audience rating, but was the most talked-about film after the festival, and seemed to attract the most attention from the public. It's a huge film made almost entirely by one person from the remote republic of Bashkortostan. It was heavily criticized by Yuriy Norshteyn in the press conference. Many people were confused by the ending. The following plot summary (courtesy of scarydoll) seems to make the most sense (read after watching the film): Three demon-buddhas are sitting with magic teeth. A blue gollum walks past and steals the teeth from one of the demons, then runs away. The demon-eagle cannot stand this; without his teeth he is not whole. From this moment, the cartoon begins. After various adventures (including body changes), the man/demon takes back his teeth from the gollum. He says farewell to the beautiful woman, apologizing for accidentally involving her in the events. Then he returns to his place, puts in his teeth and becomes an eagle again.
