Souvenirs de guerre

Souvenirs de guerre

| 16 min

Court métrage d'animation sur la guerre. Un climat de violence latente et d'insécurité pèse de plus en plus sur le monde. On ose, en haut lieu, parler publiquement d'une possible guerre mondiale. Ce très beau film d'animation s'inquiète de ce que l'avenir réserve à nos enfants... et à nous-mêmes. Comment s'habituer à l'idée de la guerre, à son apparente nécessité? Irons-nous tuer nos semblables dans d'autres pays ou recevrons-nous une bombe atomique sur la tête? Une berceuse à faire peur aux enfants.

Use the following questions to start a discussion with students in media class: How does the filmmaker evoke that climate formally? What figures and symbols appear during the narrative, and what do they refer to? What purpose do the colourful illuminated miniatures serve in telling the story? Why use songs in an animated film where there is no dialogue, only sound effects? Did you notice any images taken directly from reality? What is the overall effect of this film?
