  • The director himself uses his own hands in the "time breaks up" scene.
  • The ship's name "Julia" is an author-related easter egg, linking to his previous cartoon "Triangle".
  • The statue was supposed to be Vladimir Lenin, but of course was censored.


The film was given a 1985 Varna World Animation Film Festival award.[1]
