An animated short by Bruno Bozzetto which condenses the whole of human civilization into 9 minutes, focusing primarily on the human race’s predilection for warfare and the vanity of war. It was an Oscar Nominee for Best Animated Short in 1991.
Each piece of history is presented as a simple vignette, usually depicting a few simply-drawn characters arguing and making war, over and over again. Generally, a single figure is meant to stand in for an entire group (i.e., a single Caesar-like caricature for the entire line of Roman Emperors). There is very little spoken dialogue; instead, most of the cartoon is accompanied by a bouncy piano-driven score, which frequently changes style to suit the particular historical era. However, the score is all based around a single simple theme, to which it frequently returns in between vignettes.

FMovies Review:

Grasshoppers is one of the biggest surprises of the year 1990. Grasshoppers is by far the best online movie production I’ve ever seen. Grasshoppers is a long movie, with the space and leisure to expand and explore its themes.

Grasshoppers ‘s one of the best movie films ever made, I love music. The story is really solid, the pacing is great, and all of the actors give great performances. It’s taken me multiple rewatches and a lot of hours on the wiki to understand everything.

Sure there are classic movies which everyone like, and they are great. But Grasshoppers is just non stop awesome from start to finish. I have not found Grasshoppers movie full elsewhere so I uploaded it here, so everyone can now see it for free online.
