Enjoyable & Nicely Made
This little feature is enjoyable and nicely made. The stop-action animation still looks very good, and it is also imaginative. The story comes from Krylov's fable of "The Dragonfly and the Ant", which in turn was a Russian version of the familiar fable about the fun-loving grasshopper and the hard-working ant.

The story itself is simple, but Starewicz takes advantage of the opportunities to add visual detail. The insect models look like real insects, but their actions are believable imitations of human behavior. The attention to detail makes most scenes worth watching carefully. Except for the age of the physical print, which leaves some of the images now a little blurry, everything holds up well. It's entertaining to watch, and the point of the story is not lost, either.
