Stunningly Beautiful: 'The Cowboy's Flute' (China 1963)
While zapping through China's otherwise boring TV landscape, I stumbled upon this 1963 animation, 'The Cowboy's Flute'. The film does not contain dialogue, but all the more - and very pleasant - music. It is probably the most beautiful animation film I've ever seen, really moving.
The story is about a farmer's boy looking for the buffalo he lost while he fell asleep on a branch of a tree. The film was banned soon after release for distracting too much from political orthodoxy.
