“Berlin without a wall is no longer as snug” – as one protagonist of this play clay animation film shall regret fully remark, witnessing the revolutionary changes of 1989 in Europe. It is a story of a bunny from Vienna who, upon his arrival in Berlin, finds paradise in the no-man’s land between the walls, as well as the love of his life, which – he hopes – will allow him to improve the genetic makeup of the crumbling aristocratic lineage he belongs to. Adapted from a children’s book written by Irene Dische and Hans Magnus Enzensberger, the filmtells the story of a recent past, which for some has brought long-awaited freedom, and for others disappointment and a longing for the former system, commonly known as ‘ostalgia’. Merging detailed realism with surrealism, Plucińska animates the mascot of the united Berlin to perversely and without prejudice look back at the events from 20 years ago.
