The Clockmakers/Les horlogers

Top of page

A treat for the eyes and ears, The Clockmakers travels inside a mysterious mechanism made up entirely of revolving gearwheels, triangles and lines. In this whirling, hypnotic world where concepts like up and down lose all meaning, dozens of tiny gymnasts leap, somersault and twist through the air. Their spirited acrobatics trigger both narrative and musical sequences that are mesmerizing and at times dizzying. This experimental short film by young Renaud Hallée is a stunning work of art. Its musicality is expressed through sounds and images that complement each other in a truly original way. Half-figurative and half-abstract, The Clockmakers is a playful creation, a kind of high-wire act that is sure to captivate and dazzle its audience.
