Fallen Art (16mb avi) is the second movie directed by Tomek Baginski, following his Oscar nominated "The Cathedral..." This short animated movie has been made by a group of people for whom the army has always been an unfulfilled dream. (more info)

I saw this at The Animation Show this year, and saw a preview for it on the first Animation Show DVD. Its metaness is well suited here.

I think we finally know what's going on in those secret CIA prisons in Poland.

Yeah, all the Poles I know have gallows humor pretty much like that.

The music reminds me of the music in Underground. Is there a name for that musical style/genre?

According to the credits, the tune is called "Asfalt Tango," by a group called Fanfare Ciocarlia on their album Baro Biao, and according to this site (which has a playable audio clip), it's categorized as "balkan/gypsy/moldavian tradi-modern, brass, wedding" music. If you ask me, though, it sounds a lot like klezmer.

Or not.

This was one of my least favorites of that year's mostly underwhelming Animation Show. The first year's Show was amazing - the animations were a good mix of funny, quirky and engrossing, Judge co-hosted and Hertzfeldt seemed more into it. Nice guys, both of them, but it just seemed like the 2nd year was lacking something the 1st had.
