Conte de quartier

Top of page

A crazy day in a neighbourhood under reconstruction: seven characters and a rag doll are swept up in a dizzying chain of events. Drawing on everyday tabloid violence, Conte de quartier is a lively adventure at the crossroads of realism and fantasy. It owes its poetry and disturbing strangeness to an animation technique using paint, sand and a digital camera, highlighted by Denis Colin's subtle musical score and Olivier Calvert's sound design. The film is a fireworks display to light up audiences' imaginations. A film without words.

2006, 15 min 36 s
