Project Description

Marona-Fantastic’s-Tale

Marona’s Fantastic Tale aka
 L’extraordinaire voyage de Marona

Storyline

The story of this movie is the story of a little she-dog, Marona, a half-breed brown Labrador. Her life leaves deep traces into the human lives she intersects with. Marona is given several names by each of her ”masters”, and this is the only way her existence is reflected into the world of humans, while she brings only love into her owners’ lives.

Victim of an accident, a small female dog remembers her different masters she has unconditionally loved. With her unfailing empathy, Marona has rought lightness and innocence in each of the homes she has lived in.

"It fits the bill as a much better kids' movie than most of the more commercial fare foisted on audiences by the major studios and it should equally delight dog lovers. Having said that, as a person who neither has young kids or dogs, I adored it. And I suspect you will too."

“Il y a donc ces auteurs, qui viennent repenser le montage, le cadrage et les formes, puis il y a Anca Damian qui collabore avec Brecht Evens, Gina Thorstensen et Sarah Mazzetti et là, tout éclate.”

"Hyper-inventif et audacieux, le film, qui suit le destin émouvant d'une jeune chienne adoptée par plusieurs maîtres successifs, multiplie les superpositions de dessins à la façon de collages qui s'animeraient, une orgie de couleurs et de mouvements qui en met plein les yeux et touchera les enfants comme les adultes."

"Visually exquisite and peppered with vertiginous, sparkling, surrealist sequences, Marona's Fantastic Tale imparts a profound life philosophy on the question of identity, the search for happiness, the bonds which form between beings and the human condition as seen through the animal's eyes, all wrapped up in a very simple and moving story which is accessible to the very youngest of audiences."

“Those positive vibes are channeled by Evens’ vibrant illustrations, which teeter on the abstract but always remain figurative, recalling the paintings of French Fauvists.”

Romanian director Anca Damian ('The Magic Mountain') teamed with Belgian artist Brecht Evens for this animated feature told from a canine's perspective.

„Alors qu’il frôle l’abstraction à tout moment, donnant la part belle au ressenti au détriment du réel, L’EXTRAORDINAIRE VOYAGE DE MARONA fait mouche grâce à un récit limpide et une folie formelle agile et à propos. Ne retenez pas cette larme.”

"On a la sensation qu'elle applique au long métrage ce qu'on aime tant dans le court : cette audace formelle qui ne s'interdit aucune expérimentation, et propose un cinéma libéré des contraintes esthétiques ou narratives traditionnelles, débordant d'idées visuelles et poétiques."
