Escaping from boring home is great alright. But there are things out there much tougher to get away from...

It's my longest animation so far - 10+ minutes! I hope these minutes won't bore you and you'll get as much fun as I had making the film.

There's no translation but the dialogues are blah-blah-blah mostly, and aren't necessary to understand the movie.

I forgot the name of this flash, my bookmarks got wiped otu with my old pc, and i went as far as to post abou tit in the forums.
So glad i found this (after watching "Thw white, the black").
So colorful, and yet so strange. While at the same time, the story is clear without having to understand the language.
I agree with "berder"...very underrated flash.
Great style, very creative.

This is underrated. This is good! The only thing missing is English dubbing for the fly but you can still follow the story.

I can only guess what the bug is talking about either.

Great cartoon, it's very unique. I like all the detail put into all of the little creatures and their world in general. And my name's Sonya, too!

Wow, what a satire!

While parts of this were just plain weird, other parts are quite clearly making fun of society (Russian society, that is). I loved the cat (that is EXACTLY what fat cats are like!) and the metro frog lady. Yes, I've met the metro frog ladies in Moscow... we don't have them here in Canada, though. I never really understood what the insect was supposed to represent, but it was still cool. Surprisingly dark in parts, unusually so for Western audiences (remember, Americans don't mind violence but show them the tiniest hint of something like rape and they feel absolutely disgusted... you're making these movies for a Russian audience, but you should keep that in mind just the same)

Anyway, I think that this and "Los Dias Sin Dias" (my #3 most favourite flash on Newgrounds at the moment) are your best works to date. Your style is awesome, but in my opinion it only works if you work really hard on something like you did on those two animations; otherwise it can end up feeling rushed. It takes a certain amount of effort to take something to 80%, and the same effort again to bring something to 100% quality - but in cases like this, it's more than worth it!
