The man with the beautiful eyes (1998)

This marvelous animation won a Bafta prize back then. It is based on a Charles Bukowski poem. It is about a bunch of kids who are playing around, near to a quiet house surrounded by a pond full of goldfishes. The owner is a healthy strong man with clear eyes and they noticed him only once when he went out drunk and saluted them. He became a symbol in front of their innocent eyes but the society doesn't accept so easy our idols and tries to disappear our hopes and dreams. Just great!
