Bric à Brac: A Tragicomedy of Two Raggedy Scrap-Iron Automatons

I’m strong to the finish,
’Cause I eats me spinach,
I’m Popeye the sailor man!

Bric à Brac is an engaging 4-minute animated short film by the French filmmakers Emeline Degand and Maud Bourotte, who are two students at the EESA (now École Georges Méliès).  The cardboard, stop-motion animation tells the bittersweet story of two little robot-like thingees, who are made out of spare parts (as is everything around them).  The rhythms and poppy facial expression changes are awesome, and the two scrap-metal automatons really seem to enjoy experimenting with the musical capabilities of their bodies.  But very sadly, one ends up turning into an ecstatic Whirling Dervish, tragically getting much too carried away!
