When bullfighting was banned in Spain and former corrida arenas were transformed into supermarkets, all that unemployed toreadors could do was pose to photos for tourists. Yet, the protagonist of the animation has come across an unexpected customer – Vladimir Putin himself. ‘The Last Matador’ is a Finnish animation taking place in Barcelona; the Russian president dressed as a Spanish bullfighter is the main character and the Minotaur from the Greek mythology is to decide about his life – film scripts rarely get crazier than that!
