Madame Tutli-Putli

6 August 2013


If you like stop motion animation, then stop here a while - you will find this short movie immensely enjoyable.  Madame Tutli-Putli was nominated for an Academy Award in 2007 and you can see why.  It was created by Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski.

Funding was provided by the National Film Board of Canada which surely deserves an Oscar in its own right for the tireless work it has done over the decades to promote Canadian film making.

The eponymous heroine of the movie Madame Tutli-Putli awaits the Night Train. She is weighed down - literally by all her possessions and also by the ghosts of her past which haunt her.  As night descends she is enveloped by a desperate metaphysical adventure.  Between reality and imagination she is forced to confront her demons.

The journey here is both real and existential and the film introduced several groundbreaking visual techniques which took painstaking care and craftsmanship to bring to life.  This is something for the season if you are a fan of both Hitchcockian suspense and Jungian thrillers.

Get aboard the night train and see what awaits...
