Dance of Life

No time for posting today. Just a quick clip of life in its tragic but stunning beauty.

Noted Carla. Thanks.
By the way, where does it come from? what is the story of this clip? How did you get to see it in the first place?
Good night and good luck.

H'lo Nomad. That's a stunning bit of animation...and so much of the telling is in the spaces in between. Do you have any idea who the animator is? I have a hard time figuring from the credits, and I'd like to seek out some other works. There certainly seems to be a bit of Burton and Svankmeyer as influences...

Beautiful!, thank you for sharing it with us, Carla.

Best wishes as always.

Fuser, It was the "best animation" winner of the 07 internet film fest in Berlin. Other than that...wish I knew more.

Fool, The title is "En Tus Brazos," other than that, I've not had time to find out much more about it. When I have a few minutes, I'll see what more I can find out. But yes, I did like it because of the volumes spoken in the spaces in between.

Carla said...

Annie, You're most welcome. I hope you enjoyed.

VE said...

Am I to conclude that life is animated and subtitled?

Steffi said...

Thank you for sharing it...
Have a nice day,Carla!

Carla said...

VE, Wouldn't that be a riot.

Steffi, You're most welcome. Hope you have a great day as well.

Well, it seems that the author, Eduard Jeunet, could be in the same style than Jean-Pierre Jeunet (*Amélie, *Delicatessen). It's quite similar, are they brothers?
Nice clip and hopeful.

That was pretty cool stuff.

Why is it the European film makers can take such Darkness and turn it into something beautiful without belittling it.

pandave said...

you are right, carla. it is stunning. amazing and the dancing. oooh i so need to take dance lessons.

Carla said...

Aaoiue, No idea if they're brothers, but I love their work, both of them.

Nyd, It takes real talent, doesn't it?

Carla said...

Pandave, I've always wanted to learn how to tango. Must be one of my favorite dances.
