Still from ‘Head over Heels’

‘Head over Heels’ is a film directed by Timothy Reckart, and produced by Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly. It has won this prestigious Eruopean prize at the Cartoon Forum, held in Toulouse, France. Earlier, the film had been nominated for an Academy Award.

‘Head over Heels’ is a stop-motion film about a couple who have grown apart, even though they still live in the same house. In the film, one of them occupies the ceiling, the other the floor. This concept is a masterstroke, and the story is very well executed. The result is a moving picture, which is a well-deserved winner of the Cartoon d’Or 2013.
