How clever
26 April 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Very interesting short film by Frédéric Back, the same that gave us «L'Homme qui plantait des arbres» in 1988. In this short film (15 minutes), we see the cycles and the seasons of life through the eyes of a rocking chair. A look back at the traditions and folklore of French-Canada.

Again in this one, the animation is fantastic. Traditional french-canadian music was carefully selected for the film.

Out of 100, I gave it 82.
