Storyline

Using an array of gloves in different styles and from different historical periods, the film is a short history of the cinema - from silent movies via pastiches of Buñuel and Fellini and Close Encounters of the Third Kind to a futurist junkyard where tin cans become animated police cars in a city of urban decay.

all you need is glove
28 September 2011 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

Sticking with his frequent style, Jiří Barta's "Zaniklý svet rukavic" ("The Vanished World of Gloves" in English) tells the history of cinema with gloves acting out the roles. There's a silent picture, a tribute to "Un chien andalou", a tribute to Fellini, a cop flick, Godzilla and a tribute to "Close Encounters with the Third Kind", all contained in a film reel that a construction worker digs up.

This is just more evidence of what one can do with stop motion animation. The former Czechoslovakia produced some very good examples of this with Barta, as well as Jan Švankmajer, and apparently Jiří Trnka (whose work I've never seen but who is apparently known as the Walt Disney of Eastern Europe).

Anyway, a really fascinating cartoon.
