Alouette (1944)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Norman McLaren co-directed this three minute short that's basically one of those "follow the bouncing ball" sing-a-longs that were popular in theaters back in the day. This one here certainly isn't anything special but it's rather catchy and the animation itself is quite nice. The song being sung is the most catchy thing about the picture but the experimental nature of the animation also makes the film worth watching if you're a fan of the director's work. The best way to describe it would be to compare it to a blackboard with a chalk drawing. The drawing is a bird, which bounces around before taking various forms that mix in with the song.
