The highest European award for animation was a surprise winner.
Krokodille by Kaspar Jancis (Estonia) narrates the story of a former opera singer who ends up wearing a crocodile costume to entertain kids in the store.
However, this costume brings changes to his personality, and his behavior to the woman his love.
The bittersweet style of Krokodill triumphed over films such as the Oscar-awarded Logorama.
