Sun 21 Oct 2018, 3.30 pm: “Le Tableau”

Director: Jean-François Laguionie (France, 2011, 76’)
Cast: Jessica Monceau, Adrien Larmande, Thierry Jahn

Adagio-beated, mysterical and thrilling, this feature tells a story of many meaning layers and satisfies those who love fine art.

Film synopsis:

Le Tableau is a feature-length film using both animation and live-action and being made by senior French director – Jean-François Laguionie. The film has high concept and tells profound philosophical themes. The plot revolves around a group of half-drawn characters in a painting set off to search for the artist in order to ask why he did not complete the picture. This film has slow rhythms, colorful and full picturesque classic frames. After debuting in 2011, the film won “Best Feature Film” at 8th Festival of European Animated Feature Films and TV Specials.

A chateau, flowering gardens, a threatening forest, here is what, for mysterious reasons, a Painter has left incomplete.

Three kinds of characters live in this painting: the Toupins, who are entirely painted, the Pafinis, who lack a few colors, and the Reufs, who are only sketches.

Considering themselves superior, the Toupins take over power, chase the Pafinis from the chateau, and enslave the Reufs. Convinced that only the Painter can restore harmony by finishing the painting, Ramo, Lola, and Plume decided to go looking for him.

Throughout the adventure, questions will follow one after the other: What has become of the Painter? Why did he abandon them? Why did he begin destroying some of his paintings?

Will they one day know the Painter’s secret?

Sun 21 Oct 2018, 6 pm: “Gus petit oiseau, grand voyage”

Director: Christian De Vita
Casting: Arthur Dupont, Sara Forestier, Bruno Salomone

This enchanting animation, telling the journey of a small orphan bird leading his migrating flocks, is a meaningful life lesson.

This energetic animation has numerous true-to-life frames, telling a vivid adventure through many lands by the funny flock of birds. This is the first 3D animated film that has been made entirely in France by a talented professional team in Europe. Benjamin Renner – co-director of Oscar-nominated movie “Ernest & Celestin” – creates the character designs. Stephen Warbeck composer – who won an Oscar for the soundtrack of the 1998 film Shakespeare in Love Cartoons – writes the soundtrack. The movie is both refreshing for families and a meaningful lesson for kids.

When he is about to set off on the great migration, Darius, the oldest member and leader of the flock, gets injured. He must confide all his secrets and the new itinerary in the first bird that comes along.

And this bird… is our hero, thrilled by the idea of at last getting to discover the world… but not all a migratory one!
