Table of Love

France, 1993 (MIFF 1994, Animation Focus)

Director: Beriou

The film opens on a grey desert-like landscape with an overlay of yellow grid lines. The final tableau displays a rich design of organic matter and reveals a module of labyrinthian body structures. Between these two sequences, a love story has unravelled, playing with our perceptions.
