Mine is Jours de Plaine. The one I am linking to one Youtube is not very good in clarity. I don’t care because I have a better copy on tape. It never fails to hypnotise me. I don’t understand French, but this short always leaves me on the verge of tears, in a good way. The beauty of the colored pencil-type sketches morphing over the ethereal singing, as it exhibits a deep love of the history of one’s home. It transfixes me everytime.
I also would like to find an animated short that was on a tape I rented. The short was called Hilary. I didn’t like it at first, but I watched it a couple of times, and it grew on me. It’s a stop-motion flick about a guy telling a boy a bedtime story, and it’s full of dark angst. Youtube has about a ten second clip of it, but that’s all. I’d like to find the whole thing somewhere online if I could.
Anyone else have shorts to share?
