The Violet

Das Veilchen

Switzerland, 1982
Animation, Short


The Violet is the title of a ballad taken from Johann Wolfgang Goethe’s play-with-songs “Erwin and Elmi”. Instead of sticking to the source text, however, this fantasia in images parodies situations where people in love fail to connect with each other..
