Le manège

France, 1980
Short, Animation


Jenuet and Caro rely upon the use of marionettes to illustrate the story of children that are captured and imprisoned underneath a merry-go-round where they will conceivably spend the remainder of the lives turning the crank that makes the contraption spin.
