Sorry to return to the well so soon but here goes:

1- This was a colour, feature-length cartoon that I saw in the early to mid eighties about a gang who rob a bank in either Germany or late-Tsarist Russia, eventually fleeing to Sweden. The film had a vaguely continental sounding narrator who pretended to react to the plot's events as they developed. There may have been a heroic policeman who relentlessly tried to catch the gang and was probably the film's actual main protagonist.

2- This was a short (circa 20-30 minutes) black & white film about a 1940's/'50's urban American street. It was probably an experimental project and was very odd. I seem to remember a date of around 1968 on the end credits. The backgrounds and studio floors were obviously theatrical scenery with the actors wearing pieces of scenery on their feet as they walked on the 'pavements'. There didn't seem to be too much dialogue but plenty of sound effects were used. The heist scene consisted of two extras fleeing in a cutout style car, running into a lamppost. A dead robber's body was depicted as a cutout. All in all, an extremely quirky little oddity.

Thanks for your attention.

Good news BMaster, I think that I've solved No 1! It has to be "Agaton Sax and the Bykoebing Village Festival", a Swedish film from 1976. I was remiss in saying that it was set before World War One but my memory was playing tricks on me. The story appears to be set in the 1960's or 70's but in a stylised universe. It's based on a children's novel.
As yet the other film still remains elusive and enigmatic. As yet I haven't seen "Vigosari".

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
