This is an excellent series but if you only buy one out of the 4 volumes choose this, if only because it includes Norstein's marvellous Tale of Tales - voted the best animation of all time by critics and animators. Other films by Norstein are in some of the other volumes.

Why Amazon can't be bothered to list the full contents is beyond me, but here they are

Full Contents:

1. Tale of Tales [29:47]
2. Hunt [10:24]
3. Last Hunt [10:33]
4. There Once Was a Dog [10:35]
5. Travels of an Ant [9:41]
6. Lion and Ox [9:52]
7. Wolf and Calf [9:47]
8. Cabaret [20:54]
9. Old Stair [6:37]
10. King's Sandwich [10:30]
11. About Sidorov Vova [10:32]

true masters 19 July 2005
By J. Perry - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is like watching a children's book come to life. If you enjoy the imagery of illustration, than this series is for you. Yuri Norstein dominates this collection with "Tale of Tales", one of the best animated shorts in the history of animation.Every one of these shorts is amazing and I would recommend it to any parent, librarian, teacher, or educator that wants to show something better that the corporate, lifeless animation that is being produced today.This has heart it every cell!

Best animation ever 18 May 2009
By Francis Ouellet - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This collection is a must-have for every animation lovers. Yuri Norstein's «Tale of Tales» is a true masterpiece, absolutely brillant and enigmatic. It has be chosen Best Animation Film of All Time twice (in 1984 and 2002) by a jury of selected film critics and historians. Only for this film, you must buy this collection today. In addition, you'll get 11 other superb shorts from the Soyuzmultfilm studio (the russian Disney, but much better).You won't regret your purchase.

Best of the Master's collection 13 Dec. 2011
By Louis Gedo - Published on Amazon.com
This is the best of the Master's collection. Particularly of interest to me and really gripping stories (with excellent animation) are Hunt and Last Hunt. In Last Hunt, you are taken on an incredible journey into the wilds of Africa from the perspective of a 10 year old boy. This is a treat and I think you will really like this volume because of the films in it.

meh... 28 May 2010
By Lexa and/or Chris - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
this is probably the worst vol of the russian animation series. none of the animations are particularly interesting, yes even the slightly overrated tale of tales. overall just not that good, if you are getting into this kind of animation id recommend vol. 1 or 2.
