Egg

France, 1994 (MIFF 1995, Animation)

Director: Pierre Bouchon, Jose Miguel Ribreiro

A humorous model animation where a fried egg becomes aware of its own mortality. As it attempts to fend off the threatening spatula, where bribery, threats and egg-agility are to no avail, the egg finally takes a desperate measure. An everyday egg tragedy enacted within one and a half minutes in a frying pan .
