Storyline

A tenor, in suit and tie, with a receding hairline, sings a ballad to his love, "Your face is like a song," to simple piano accompaniment. As he sings about his love's face, his own face goes through phantasmagoric changes, beginning with his warbling mouth moving about. As the singing continues, his face twists, turns, explodes, liquefies, becomes block-shaped, multiples, curls, disappears in sections and all at once, and always reconfigures itself serenely into its original shape. As the song ends, the camera pans back revealing the man sitting in a chair on the green field of mother earth. She may have a face and designs of her own. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The odd-sounding voice the man is singing in is actually that of Maureen McElheron. After the song was recorded, the recording was slowed by one-third, giving the desired (and unusual) effect. See more »

A remarkable piece of animation by Bill Plympton
6 December 2001 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short, nominated for an Academy Award, is visually exceptional and conceptually wonderful. From what I've seen of his work, it's also one of the most conventionally "normal" pieces he's done! It's a kick to watch. Plympton is an acquired taste and I seem to have done so. If you like good animation that messes with the boundaries and sometimes colors outside the lines, try Plympton. By all means, catch this one! Most recommended.
