| Let's play with colors and shapes!
Experimental animated short by Norm McLaren. For 3 minutes, you have abstract forms going through the screen at high speed. Bright colors, shapes, all in accord with the fiddler's piece. All of that is somehow obnubilating. A lot of questions pop up in your head while watching, just like when you come across a strange abstract painting in a museum. At 3 minutes lenght, just experiment it for yourself. I guess it was interesting that much color on a big screen in 1947.

Seen at the Médiathèque of the National Film Board, in Toronto, on December 17th, 2004. I gave it 75 out of 100. That's good for **½ out of ****.
