It's a Dog's Life

Top of page

Fifi the dog has two main goals in life: being best friend to Mom, Dad and the kids—and keeping up with science news! The two go hand in hand for this scholarly canine: while doing whatever it takes to please his masters, he tries to make off with the newspaper articles he craves. One evening, at mealtime, Fifi finds himself stuck under the kitchen table, surrounded by the hubbub of conversation. Soon the dinner guests are making quite a ruckus, and the poor pooch gets blamed for it in spite of himself. Jostled from all sides, Fifi would give anything to be left alone in his basket, his nose buried in a feature story on space travel. It’s going to be a long night... Animated using a graphics tablet, this short by Julie Rembauville and Nicolas Bianco-Levrin is the tale of a dog’s life on a human scale—an urban fable about learning to live together.
