NFB Fairy books--Andrew Lang and H. J. Ford

This film is from Claude Cloutier and was financed by the National Film Board of Canada. The NFB's backing often means you're going to see an exceptional film and this film certainly is exceptional...and well worth your time.

The story is a Sleeping Beauty sort of tale, as all the folks in the castle are trying to wake the princess--with no success. Eventually, however, she awakens. Does this sound particularly interesting based on my description? Not in the least! But it is wonderful from start to finish for many reasons. The artwork is really neat--very memorable and very unique. I just loved the fine line drawings and know you will also. The story has a WONDERFUL sense of humor and made me laugh many times. Sometimes it was because of wonderful jokes, sometimes it was looking at the characters (the attendants in the princess' bedroom are a hoot--believe me). And, I adored how Cloutier designed the credits--something most people won't get, but a wonderful nod to the Fairy books--a series of books (such as the "Green Fairy Book" and the "Purple Fairy Book") by Andrew Lang and H. J. Ford. It has the fonts and scroll-work directly from these books. A must-see and a very funny and surreal cartoon.
