Animals and More Animals (DVD)

Crew
Composed by Philippe Hersant
Directed by Nicolas Philibert

After nearly thirty years of being shut away from the public, the stuffed animals of Paris's Natural History Museum are about to see the light of day agin.

In ANIMALS AND MORE ANIMALS, Nicolas Philibert and his unobtrusive crew are there to chronicle the 1994 preparations for the animals' return. It's a glimpse into the world behind the displays of a major museum, focusing on the fascinating work of the taxidermists.

"Surrealistically thrilling! Fascinates!" - Jay Carr, amNY

"A picture of man's relationship to nature that is every bit as beguiling as a Rousseau." - Nathan Lee, THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Delightful... There's a strange primal melancholy to this frozen kingdom that Philibert both respects and finds wryly amusing, especially when specimens are being poked, painted and spruced by human hands." - Dennis Harvey, VARIETY

  • WINNER: Golden Gate Award, San Francisco Int'l Film Festival
