Storyline

Famadihana is an ancient Malagasy custom that means "the turning of the dead". A symbol of the importance of the worship of ancestors, and a chance to move the remains of ancestors from their first tomb to their final resting place, it is an occasion for festivities, dance and the sacrifice of zebus. The movie is filmed like the travel journey of a Western traveler in search of these customs. The pages turn, the drawings come to life, and the luxuriant landscapes of Madagascar appear one after another. The celebrations may commence. Written by Anonymous

An odd little movie I didn't enjoy but I'm sure will find happiness with some.

'MADAGASCAR, A JOURNEY DIARY': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

The weakest of the 2010 Oscar animated short films this one tells the story of a young man's visit to Madagascar in animated diary formant. It was written, directed and edited by Bastien Dubois. The film jumps around from one image to another with no real story. It really is like a scapbook put to animation but the animation is rather weak and unimpressive. The lack of story or any sort of direction whatsoever makes the movie kind of dull, in my opinion, and drawn-out (even at just 11 minutes). It does deserve some points for creativity and uniqueness and also for breaking all storytelling and film rules. An odd little movie I didn't enjoy but I'm sure will find happiness with some.
