A la francaise


Today started the "My French Film Festival," an online film festival that showcases short and feature films. The festival is backed by many sponsors like "Variety," "Le Monde," "Air France," "France 24," and several others.

So I'll be reviewing all the movies (some though don't have rights to the U.S.) and I'll be starting with the short films.

What's one way to make fun of your countries history? Use birds as the royalty and noblemen. That's what 'A la francaise,' is a 7 min. animated film that was quite funny. The animated film was a graduation film and it was directed by, Morrigane Boyer, Julien Hazebroucq, Ren-Hsien Hsu, Emmanuelle Leleu, and William Lorton.

The film's plot is simple, an afternoon in Versailles, during the reign of Louis XIV.

The one thing that is different though is, it's not people and there is no human dialogue because well they are poultry. That doesn't leave out the scandal, one of the bird's is writing about all the scandal that surrounds the court and once the papers fly away, a war starts.

So "A la francaise," is a fun, ironic spoof on historical figures. The only thing against is it could be a few minutes longer! So to watch this movie all you have to pay is less than $2. This movie is 4/5 stars.
