A musical about the agonies of modern-day family life in the 20th century, taking place on New Year's Eve.

A postcard that gets put into the wrong mailbox, and a misunderstood lipstick mark on the forehead, cause a married couple to trade accusations of infidelity that threaten to derail their holiday.

The first video above has a less blurry image.




This was a real pain to translate, but I think it's worth it - it's a very enjoyable film. The art style strongly reminded me Andrey Svislotskiy's 1992 Hypnerotomachia (even a bit of the animation is copied), and indeed, the same art director, Yevgeniy Sheshenin, worked on both films, and Svislotskiy was an animator on this one. But the credits for this film are very incomplete and neither are credited.

Neither are they listed in the English subtitles (because there are song lyrics that need translating), so I'm going to list the credits in this comment, just so they exist somewhere online:
