Lili (2008)

Original title: Lili

Animation Duration 14:12

There is a mortally wounded young soldier in a crater and a bunch of hungry rats from the battlefield try to find an answer to the question "Who is Lily Marleen?", is it a memory picture of the first love of passed times or the first intercourse with a prostitute earning her regular income.
Lily is not only a distant hero from a song. Every soldier has his own Lily, would it be the first love from school, front prostitute or simply phantasm. But always, however, she is waiting for her soldier underneath the lantern by the barrack gate.....
