Forget The Day After. The great nuclear-war movie of the early '80s is this 10-minute take on Ray Bradbury's "There Will Come Soft Rains":

The film was made by Nazim Tulyakhodzayev—a Soviet director—in 1984, giving the picture a foothold on both sides of the Cold War.

Bonus link: That time the FBI thought Bradbury might be a Communist.
