Nice Mix of Music and Animation

C'est l'aviron (1944)

*** (out of 4)

While there's certainly nothing ground-breaking to be found here, this three minute short from Norman McLaren is certainly well-made and it at least keeps you attention throughout its running time. There's not really any plot but we've got a Canadian song playing in the background while we see various images including the front of a boat moving through the water as well as scenes moving in the clouds. I don't know French so I couldn't understand the song but even without knowing the lyrics I thought it was rather catchy. I'd also argue that the animation has a very good look to it and helps improve the entertainment level.
