  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

    Dommage que le commentaire en voix off, se voulant humoristique et original, frise souvent la nullité, alors que l'image se suffit à elle-même, agrémentée d'une composition de Frédérique Chopin, pour illustrer l'évidente beauté visuelle... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Tibulle85's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

    Toujours aussi sympa! Un ton à la fois léger et instructif. Cette rétrospective est géniale! ;-)

  3. Irem Abacı's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

    çok tatlı :) +chopin *kalp*

  4. fearraigh's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

    More creepy aquatic magic from Painlevé.

  5. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

    Curiosité, grâce et élégance... Comme quoi, il n'y a pas que les pandas qui mérite notre attention...

  6. Paul and Wade's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

    In some ways the most interesting of the Painlevé nature films presented this month on Mubi, this one, is notable for several images of extraordinary beauty. Some of the aesthetic effect is lost due to the fairly constant stream anthropomorphic comment: praying Buddha, invitation to waltz, Ballet. etc. See them all in fairly quick succession to help place them in historical context.

  7. captainfez's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

    Another in Painlevé's series of Reasons I Won't Be Going Into The Sea Any Time Soon.

  14. nicole.peter@orange.fr's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

    Un ballet très impressionnant d'animaux qu'on n'imagine pas, avec de très beaux plans.

  15. Marco Bevilacqua's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

    I like the way the early French directors made those experimental short movies. The techniques and the inventions created were in a pioneering spirit. I really like the look of the under-water flowers and the recording motion crated with them. I think, however, that some parts are not very well connected with each other, some of the images are not as beautiful as the others.

  17. siobhantebbs's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

    Gem of a short doc from the twenties. Seeing nature really inspected in black and white makes you focus more on the patterns than you do in colour. Chopin just the perfect combo of majestic and playful to audio-illuminate these fascinating creatures. Love it when Mubi digs this sort of thing out of the sand.

  18. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

  19. Aube James's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

    Fascinating because it's awfully dated and matter-of-factly. I missed the avant-garde part, but I can see the hipster appeal. Prolly shot with cameras bigger than your microwave.

  20. Ludovic72's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

    Des crustacés marins sur leur 31 (entendez "habillés d'algues") et faisant les malins sur du Chopin, on ne va pas trouver ça vilain ! Les commentaires de Jean Painlevé soulignent d'ailleurs la drôlerie du spectacle, avec un humour "so twenties". De la vulgarisation à l'ancienne, en somme, avec de très beaux plans rapprochés de ces rois du camouflage et de leur compagnon spirographe (pas piqué des vers, celui-là).

  21. HSBilly's rating of the film Hyas and Stenorhynchus

    playful biology class. i listened to yo la tengo's scoring version but i'm more into the original one.
