Anonyme a demandé: So if we wanted to watch some French animation, what films would you suggest?

ursulatheseabitchh:

the Triplets of Belleville is about an elderly woman searching for her son who was kidnapped in the middle of a Tour de France race. It’s largely free of dialogue, but the sound effects and such are wonderful. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature—it lost to Finding Nemo.

A Cat in Paris is about a young girl and her cat who discover mysteries in the course of one night. It was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Rango.

Persepolis is based on an autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi about her early life in Iran. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Ratatouille.

the Illusionist is about an aging magician and an imaginative young girl who form a father/daughter relationship. It was also nominated for a Best Animation Oscar, but lost to Toy Story 3.

The Rabbi’s Cat is a story about a cat who swallows a parrot and gains the ability to speak like a human. It is set in 1920’s Algeria.

Ernest & Celestine is the adorable story about a big bear and a little mouse who forge an unlikely friendship. It was also nominated for an Oscar in Best Animated Picture, but lost to Frozen.

Kirikou and the Sorceress is a story inspired by West African folklore that tells the story of Kirikou, a boy who was born with the ability to walk and talk, who saves his people from an evil witch. The film was popular enough to spawn sequels and a stage adaptation.

A Monster in Paris is a 3D animated musical film that is reaaaaalllly loosely based on the Phantom of the Opera. It’s set in 1910 and is about, surprisingly, a monster that lives in Paris, and his love for a young singer.

The King and the Mockingbird is an 80’s film about a cruel king titled Charles V + III = VIII + VIII = XVI, who is obsessed with a young shepherdess, and whose attempts to capture the young girl are thwarted by a mockingbird whose wife the King had previously killed.  

Those are probably the most famous of the feature length animated films.

But the animated short films are just as glorious. Here’s a compilation of a bunch of short films and I can link you to others as well. 

Sorry for the long answer but I just really love French animation.

William Blake, The Ghost of a Flea, c. 1819-20

The subject of The Ghost of a Flea arose from a series of bizarre drawings of so-called ‘visionary heads’, created by William Blake in 1819. During nightly meetings his friend, the artist and amateur astrologist John Varley, urged Blake to draw the many historical and ethereal figures which populated his visions. Absorbed in a trancelike state, Blake filled two sketchbooks and a possible third with sketches of the visionary heads of Merlin, Robin Hood, Alexander the Great, John Milton and his daughters, Charlemagne and ‘the man who built the Pyramids’, among many others. Among the more grotesque drawings was that of the monstrous ghost of a flea, a spirit which apparently explained to Blake that fleas are inhabited by the souls of bloodthirsty men. Blake later developed the drawing into this painting, portraying the flea-ghost as a heavily-muscled behemoth striding across what might be a visionary landscape, or, as suggested by the swaying curtains and what appear to be floorboards, a theatre stage. The flea carries a chalice, apparently to collect the human blood it thirsts for with its darting tongue. {More information on Blake’s ‘Visionary Heads’} {Alan Moore discusses the painting}

Nymph On Pan’s Shoulders, 1874 – by Arnold Böcklin
Although this artwork is titled “Nymph on Pan’s shoulders”, this is more than likely a maenad (hence the thyrsusshe is holding, a symbol of Dionysos).
A thyrsus is a staff of giant fennel, covered with ivy vines and leaves, sometimes wound with taeniae, and always topped with a pine cone. Maenad’s, the raving ones, who worshiped and followed Dionysos, were often seen with Pan (as he is in the retenue of  Dionysos as well). Perhaps, that was the artist’s true intention.
