Review:

Porcelaines tendres © Émile Cohl‘Porcelaines tendres’ is a tableau vivant film, like ‘L’éventail animé‘ and ‘Les couronnes‘, with people now pretending to be porcelain figures in crockery items.

Like two earlier shorts the film has a vague chronological order, and is very stylized and beautiful. Nevertheless, the film is less gripping than the former two films, and its frame more conventional, being akin to frames used in other contemporary French films. As in all of Cohl’s tableau vivant films, no animation is involved.

Watch ‘Porcelaines tendres’ yourself and tell me what you think:

‘Porcelaines tendres’ is available on the DVDs ‘Émile Cohl – L’agitateur aux mille images’
