Le garçon qui a vu l'iceberg

Top of page

Court métrage d'animation qui raconte l'histoire drôle mais poignante d'un garçon à l'imagination fertile, film dans lequel se mêlent le « réel » et le « fantaisiste ». Grâce à la technique qu'il utilise, celle de l'écran composite multicouche, Paul Driessen se joue des frontières mouvantes entre ces deux univers. Un garçon, lassé du quotidien, s'invente une vie d'aventure diabolique et dangereuse. Accoutumé dans ses rêves éveillés à se mesurer au monde des monstres et des malfrats, il se trouve un jour complètement désarmé devant une vraie situation dramatique. Il a même plus de difficulté que d'habitude à convaincre les autres de ce qu'il a vu : un iceberg! Soudain, il souhaite revenir à la vie normale à laquelle il avait voulu échapper. Film sans paroles.
