Lucien: Meditation on a Life’s Peaceful End

Lucien: Meditation on a Life’s Peaceful End

There’s a feeling I get
when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.

Lucien is a 2-minute animated short film created three young French filmmakers, Nathalie Corcessin, Djamel Meslem, and Pierre-Julien Vandenburie. Lucien is  a 2D film made in beautifully executed colors that’s a meditation on the peaceful ending of one old man’s life.  Guided by the man’s watchful, caring cat, old Lucien climbs a ladder high into the clouds, attaches himself to a glittering star and then peacefully glides off into heavenly eternity.  Ah, what a superior being, the cat.  Even their religious myths are by far much better (and believable) than those of men.
