Superlative Animated Story
11 May 2001 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

CRAC goes the tree as it falls to earth, its lumber soon to be fashioned into a sturdy rocking chair destined to become a prominent part of the home of a Quebecois frontier family.

This little French Canadian film is pure animated joy. Telling its story from the viewpoint of a piece of furniture, it is served exceedingly well by its exuberant, expressionistic drawing brimming with pastel colors. Interweaving convivial, lighthearted dance music with snatches of lullaby & legend, it tells its multi-layered, beautifully detailed story without the need of obtrusive dialogue. A true modern classic, this is a film which should delight viewers for generations to come.

Winner of the 1981 Oscar for Best Animated Short.
