Love, Passion and Love

France, 1994 (MIFF 1995, Animation)

Director: Ghislain Cravatte

A puppet animation in which dolls are used to parody American sitcom television. Presented in three parts, the antics of the dolls are linked by a black Shakespearian character (perhaps Othello or a black Hamlet) who comments on the action before disappearing, angel-like into the sky. Peo­ple with Barbie dolls should not allow their little friends to view this film without guidance .
