MIFF 2012 Review: Le Tableau

Le Tableau
Dir. Jean-François Laguionie
Country: France
Aus Rating: N/A
Running Time: 75mins

An artist’s canvas is his universe. They can do whatever they like and there are no rules. What then happens if the artist decides they no longer care about what they created and leave their work to sit unfinished? This is the initial premise behind Jean-François Laguionie’s sublimely charming animation, Le Tableau. Made in sumptuously styled animation with a kaleidoscope of bright colours, this briskly-paced French production deals with themes of identity and imagination in a way that should entrance younger viewers, while also allowing adults to get enraptured in the gorgeous animation and lively action. Gorgeously animated – 2D, but accentuated with CGI – Le Tableau is a gem.
