The Joy of Living

La Joie de Vivre

France, 1934
Animation, Short, Musical


In this animated short film, the high voltage lines are used as a musical stave, a trapeze and a trampoline. Two energetic young women walk together in time. Their stride relaxes into a pas de deux. The straps of their white dresses quiver, furtively showing a breast.
