"I've loved the films of Yuri Norstein for years now. I first saw'Hedgehog in the Fog' as a film student in the early 1980s and became instantlyenchanted. Like many I was immediately drawn into his sensual world by therichness of the aural and visual landscapes he creates. Norstein's films are magicaland atmospheric, lovingly and masterfully executed. His story-telling andillustration style is earthy and rich in symbols which are beautiful inthemselves - but one senses there is a lot more hidden behind them."
