One Night in One City

One Night in One City, also known as One Night in a City and One Night in the City (Czech: Jedné noci v jednom městě) is a stop-motion-animated feature-length black comedy horror film from the Czech Republic. It was released theatrically in its home country on 25 January 2007 and features only incomprehensible mumblings instead of dialogue, much like the earlier animated feature Krysar.

The film was made with the help of the Czech government; it got a grant of Kc 1.875 million (~US$100,000) in 1998, the largest grant given to an animated production for that year. It was produced by MAUR Film, which was previously responsible for two award-winning Czech feature films (also puppet-animated), Fimfárum and Fimfárum 2. The film participated in the "Forum for European Animation Films" in March 2007.

The DVD of the film was released on February 25, 2008.
