Animation Classic No.5 ‘Father and Daughter’ by Michael Dudok De Vit

I remember seeing this film at the Watershed in Bristol ( @wshed ) getting on for 10 years ago now, IIRC I think the Director was there for a show and tell (Bless you Watershed, fine purveyor of art house noodlings). Its probably that long since I’ve actually watched the film, I knew it was good, but I’d forgotten how good…

The youtubes dosn’t really do this film justice, it really is a lovely looking thing. I watched a very low quality version of it yesterday before posting here and that still brought a tear to my eye! The score is also worthy of a mention, I love the way the instruments change as the girl gets older. Anyways, put aside 8 minutes and watch this beautiful piece of animated film, you won’t regret it.
