We saw both the English and French versions of this film last week (july 2005) at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Of course, Joyce Borenstein reveals her father's art to us in expert fashion, but one is particularly struck by the visual beauty of the photos -- still and otherwise -- of forests, birds, skies, and the whimsical, touching animation. The story of the aborted violin lesson -- told simply by animation with a voice-over -- will remain with me forever. I don't remember the 1992 Academy Award nomination. Was there no budget for publicity? Why hasn't this film been shown in New York area art houses? It's a gem. Would like to purchase a DVD or VHS version for our grandson.
