I remember watching some of his short films "z podzielną uwagą" (a Polish phrase approximately meaning "with approximate attention") on YouTube around the time I joined this forum and was also active on Film General & Classic Film Board, in particular because Perception de Ambiguity was a fan of these, while I was reading Fyodor Dostoyevsky novels (usually in Polish or English translations), and I do have Eastern European blood/heritage/connections.

The Old Man and the Sea (1999) is one of Petrov's short films I distinctly remember deciding not to attempt viewing, maybe because the first Hemingway novel I read was about The Spanish Civil War of the 1930s ("Komu bije dzwon" is the Polish translation of the title), but as monty can confirm nobody expects coffee at 11 or a comfy chair.. (why am I even writing this?)

'The Double' with Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska tho :wub:

Cute short, my favourite of the five Petrovs I've seen thus far. Just fell short of making my <400 list (was probably on there in earlier years), and will likely be dropped from my Russian list the next time we run a poll.

It's still good, though, and worth your time. I do like Petrov's painted animation style, even if I don't always care for the films themselves.
