Nice animation, bad music.
5 March 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Norman McLaren was a very prolific Canadian animator who was born in the UK. Most of his films would be described as 'arty' and are pretty much unknown here in the States. However, I've seen several of his films on various DVD collections and I like these sorts of shorts--and was thrilled to see a seven disk set of his work. This particular short is from the first disk.

This is a very arty film. It consists of a French-Canadian lady singing a song I could not understand, as it had no captions of any sort. Aestetically speaking, I didn't like it one bit. But the animations by McLaren were nice--featuring very complicated frame by frame changes to a pastel painting. Technically, it was very nice but I think it would play better without the music--it was a bit off-putting. You can tell McLaren is improving his craft but his choice of music has not aged well.
