Our very French Valentine to you

Comrade Bingo is under the weather today and has decided to give you an early Valentine instead of a proper blog. The plan was to post this on Friday but this absolutely gorgeous film should inspire you to pull all the stops and give you enough time to set up a most romantic weekend.

Don't forget to click the full screen button. This short film is"Nuit blanche", directed by Arev Manoukian.

  1. This was absolutely charming! I firstly thought it was totally animated, then I thought it was photographed and the animation added to it. Breathtaking skill, however it was done.
    The music too is superb!
    Thank you for posting this!
    Is the National Film Board of Canada still as strong a body as it used to be? I'm thinking of many many years ago, but one film of theirs which stands out in my brain is Square Dance. I was a really wee girl when that was on TV!!

  2. Thank you so very much for your comment, Cat. The NFB surely is not as present in the Canadian consciousness as it used to be in past decades but it does still manage one or two nominations most years come Oscars time.
