Beautiful animation of epic proportions
25 January 2008 | by (Xanadu) – See all my reviews

In only fifteen minutes of animation with minimal dialog Frederic Back represents the transformation of the world of Quebecois lumberjacks into the modern industrialized city. The story is centered around a rocking chair, one of the symbols of older generations (many cartoons feature a rocking chair coupled with grandpa/grandma) and the stories that particular chair has seen until it finally ended up as a museum piece. The story has an air of innocence that is further emphasized by the use of pastel colors, the type children use to draw. The outlines of the characters and decor are also pretty much stylized in the manner of a child. However, even if this isn't the technology of Pixar it is still better than many, more complex animations, because the technique used is relevant for the ideas Back wanted to present. It is precisely because the drawing is "sloppy" that the cartoon is so effective in catching the viewers eye.
