“Hedgehog in the Fog” February 10, 2008

Posted by sensawunda in Movies.

Here is a link to an enchanting Russian animated short film called “Hedgehog in the Fog.”

The Hedgehog discovers the sublime wonder of the world by seeing it from an altered perspective (provided by the fog). Sometimes frightening, sometimes beautiful… transformed, and transformative.

I have heard one opinion that found the hedgehog character “dull.” Thinking about this, I believe it’s because he’s a more passive character than we’re used to… especially after generations of Western fiction writers have had it drummed into their heads that “protagonists must be active!” The Hedgehog does choose to enter the fog, though.

The animation is just lovely. I could watch this over and over.

You could say that I too, am a Hedgehog in the Fog.
