Little Lionel: A Short Documentary About Spinach, Pebbles, Pirañas and Cows

Little Lionel: A Short Documentary About Spinach, Pebbles, Pirañas and Cows

Lionel is a very funny animated short film created by four students at Gobelins, a French school of visual communication.  In the film, some filmmakers are trying to make a documentary at a small elementary school in France.  As part of the documentary, they interview the very, very active six-year-old Lionel in his first-grade classroom.  So what is this  documentary really all about?  Is it supposed to be something about French elementary school education?  If so, you certainly wouldn’t know it from what they got from their interview with little Lionel, who begins by talking  to them about  the spinach at lunch, followed by his observations on pebbles in the spinach, leading to a recitation about rocks, pirañas and cows.  Finally, little Lionel shares his conclusion from all of that, which is something about how cows came to live in the country, rather than on the edge of the ocean or at the seashore.
