The Legend of Bisclavret

Post by slowtiger » Sun Jun 12, 2011 8:22 pm

I don't know if people outside of france and germany can watch this at all:

There's a short excerpt here:

Some images:

The story is quite nice (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bisclavret), but what I really like is the style: stained glass windows in cutout animation! In the Making Of the director showed the elements which were all done in watercolour on paper, then scanned in. I find the colours just beautiful, they all glow like real glass windows.

No, couldn't view the first link here in the UK. From the YouTube clip and stills it looks beautiful!

It will be again on arte on
June 23rd 4.35pm (16.35)

Maybe you can ask some friends to record it in France and Germany.

A german recording will have the german version, so better try to ask a french friend, :wink: for the original version. :D

That was beautiful, I wish I could understand German so I could enjoy the story in full - regardless with the plot summary it all made sense :-D
