Jeu

Jeu

Jeu is a super short, three to four minute, abstract animation film from Canada. Set to a piece by Prokofiev, it could even be classified as a music video.

“Jeu,” by the way, is French for “play” or “game.”

It’s kind of Escher-like, as different shapes and figures flow into each other. There’s no story or anything like that, at least in any linear, understandable sense.

It’s creative, and it’s mildly interesting to watch. The way things transform—a man’s face becoming a woman’s face, for instance—is the most eye-catching.

Jeu didn’t capture me in a big way, though, to where I would have preferred a substantially longer version of the same piece. It’s stylistically intriguing enough to watch for a few minutes like this, but that’s about it.
