Franz Kafka's story animated; The Country's Doctor / カフカ 田舎医者
This is multiple award winning effort by Koji Yamamura, based on famous Franz Kafka's story. Very artistic, very surreal and awesome animation. I can see why it is become award winning, it feels unique in experiencing the movie. To me it is like watching Piccasso or Dali's painting being animated in a semblance of a story.
Despite its superlative qualities, this is not for mainstream audience. However for those who look for higher expression of animation, this one is a must see.
