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 »

I need to start watching more of Bill Plympton's cartoons
5 July 2019 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

Bill Plympton's Academy Award-nominated "Your Face" goes the Bob Clampett route, with a man's face changing in all sorts of ways while he sings. This short shows the heights that animation can reach when one puts one's imagination to it. It was certainly a neat one. Available on YouTube.
