The Man with the Beautiful Eyes

UK, 2000 (MIFF 2000, Animation)

Director: Jonathan Hodgson

The Man With the Beautiful Eyes tells the story of a group of children's encounter with a strange man who gives them a glimpse of what life doesn't have to be. It is an adaptation of the poem by Charles Bukowski and is narrated by Peter Blegvad, a man with a beautiful voice. This wonderfully expressive animation captures the vitality and passion of Bukowski.
