Le Criminel

France, 1993 (MIFF 1995, Animation)

Director: Gianluigi Toccafondo

With clear references to film noir, Toccafondo presents a masterwork of animation that has both a luminosity and a richness of texture. Accompanied by an atmospheric soundtrack, Le Criminel explores the underworld where shad­ows seem to come alive and the audience's point of view seem constantly fluid. The effect is visually mesmerising.
