Yugoslavia's Zagreb Films studio created some of the world's most critically-acclaimed animated films, and this video collects seven Zagreb shorts that take a funny and irreverent look at human foibles. "Mouseferatu" puts a new spin on an old vampire legend, "Plot" finds a man getting more than he bargained for when he picks up a woman at a bar, "Satiemania" offers an unusual visualization of the music of Eric Satie, "Dream Doll" records a man's unusual relationship with an inflatable doll, "Album" depicts a girl traveling through the past in her family's photo album. A man gets ready for another day at work in "Way To Your Neighbor," and "The Match" introduces a new subtext to the game of soccer. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
