directed by Lev Polyakov/
“Only Love” is a tragicomedy about a Dictator, a Rebel, and Love. It is a darkly humorous tale of a dictator facing the ghosts of his past misdeeds, a man’s eternal search for love, and the terrible price one sometimes has to pay for it. Brimming with nonstop creative energy, this traditionally animated short is a feast for the eyes and ears with beautifully painted backgrounds, outstanding orchestral score, and a story that will make you laugh and cry.
“I’m sure that love can have an effect on a person stronger than a sumo wrestler using him or her as a yoga mat. There are lots of examples in history of people breaking down their hard exterior only when love is shown towards them… such is it’s power.”
– Lev Polyakov, director of Only Love
