Crin-Crin

2015, Iris Alexandre, Belgium, 4 min.

As the history of animation makes abundantly clear, there are few things as enjoyable as watching silly-looking animals visiting indignities on each other. In this case, a nefarious rabbit and raccoon make off with the tail of a self-regarding horse—while the fiddler in the film uses an appropriated horsehair (“crin” in French) for her own purposes. As wacky mayhem ensues, the four musicians keep the fun going with their virtuoso performance. And, as the cartoon universe has also taught us, crime often pays.
