A little mole, a squirrel and a bat, a polar bear, and lots of stars! Florent Marchet, a singer-songwriter and the author of numerous original soundtracks, draws on three short animated films to write a cinema-concert for little ones with three pianos and a vibraphone. The set includes La Petite Taupe et l’étoile verte by the Czech artist Zdenĕk Miler, a 1950s cartoon star, but also the very beautiful and more recent Tôt ou tard by Jadviwga Kowalska – featuring a squirrel that lives with a bat in a tree. Not to mention the polar fable, La P’tite Ourse, by Fabienne Collet, about the mystery of constellations, and of life! This artisanal approach to film goes perfectly with Florent Marchet’s sensitive way of meandering through images. A beautiful journey to enjoy at any age!
