Storyline

Mussorgsky's composition is the soundtrack for this pin-screen animated take on night and wild things. A scarecrow blows down, clouds move by quickly. Beings take shape; a town appears, animals flee, and a horse gallops by. A child looks on. Monsters run and float by: the phantasmagoric is everywhere. A woman's figure tumbles through space. A clash ensues. The horse falls. Goblins take control. The night and its denizens are relentless. Forms appear and become grotesque. Will dawn and calm ever come? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I had no idea this wonderfully artistic process went back to 1933.
12 October 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

About a year ago, I saw a short film from Canada called Le PAYSAGISTE. It was made completely by the pinscreen process where little pinholes were painstakingly made in fabric in order to create an animated picture. I was mesmerized by this film from 1976 and no idea that the film maker had actually NOT created the process and that Alexander Alexeieff and Claire Parker had perfected the process over 40 years earlier with UNE NUIT SUR LE MONT CHAUVE.

Both films are quite lovely to look at but aren't exactly the style of animation that most people would love. It's extremely artistic but not commercially entertaining to the average audience. In an art museum it would play well, but for a group of kids or average theater goers, it's unlikely they'd enjoy the rather artsy style. I liked it quite a bit, though I admit it isn't something I'd like to see every day.
