The Old Lady and the Pigeons () Short Film

A starving gendarme, wasting away from hunger, is reduced to grabbing castoff snacks from fat American tourists. When he sees as old woman feeding pigeons, in desperation he hits on the bizarre idea of dressing up as one, replete with grotesque, oversized head, and passing himself off as one of them! (imdb)

The film's central joke is good, but it takes a bit long to pay off, and the tourist bookends are horrid and unnecessary.

I would recommend this to anyone who is thinking about going on a diet, because this will surely take your appetite away.

If you like this make sure to watch Triplets of Bellevilles and The Illusionist. Sylvain Chomet is amazing.

4/9/9 - Charming and beautifully-drawn dark comedy. The characters are all wonderfully observed caricatures (though none more so than the pigeons).

Funny, bizarre, and very well-animated. The characters are very expressive and more than a little grotesque. On par with any other classic animated short one could name.

Is it just me or is Sylvain Chomet a pure genious ? After each one of his films (check out Les Triplettes de Belleville aswell), you are left dazed and confused, wowed and at the end begging for more.

This short animated movie is Sylvain Chomet giving us the first taste of the weirdness that will also dominate his full-length sophomore project, The Triplets of Belleville. Both are recommended.
