The Painting (Le Tableau)
In English! Recommended age 7+

Directed by Jean-François Laguionie
2011, France, Belgium, Canada, 1h18, dubbed in English

In this wryly inventive parable, a kingdom within a painting is divided into three castes: the impeccably colored Alldunns, the incomplete Halfies, and the barely outlined Sketchies who are treated as outcasts. Chastised for her forbidden love of the dashing Ramo, Claire runs away into the cursed forest. Ramo and his friends journey after her, crossing over the boundaries of the forest only to arrive at the very edge of the painting – where they tumble through the canvas and into the Painter’s studio. The abandoned workspace is strewn with paintings, Ramo, Lola, Quill and Magenta explore picture after picture, in a quest to discover just what the Painter has in mind for his creations.

ENCHANTING! A constant feast for the eyes! -Variety

(Please note: the film shows a painted nude in the studio comes to life and becomes a talking)
