Again this 2011 France presents us with a masterpiece of cinema. A daring film, magnificent, a true poem in animated form!

After offering us "The Artist" - a silent film and black and white - in the first half, the French cinema 2011 harvest now regales us with "Le Tableau": a 2D animated film that, without using technology as their main weapon , gives a ball in many 3D's we cherish.

Packed with a magnificent original music (Pascal Le PENNEC) and a highly philosophical and original screenplay, Jean-François Laguionie presents us, this holiday season, a splendid art film. The whole movie is a beauty and originality that can cause us, spectators, which the French poet Pierre Reverdy called a day of "poétique shocked."

The story begins within a framework where cohabit three categories of characters: the "Toupins" (painted the whole), the "Pafinis" (unfinished) and "Reufs" (blanks). The "Toupins" feel superior by their appearance finalized and composed of different colors.

They are, therefore, those who dictate the rules of the framework, and also the only ones able to enter the castle, to attend their dances and their beautiful colors.

In the dark forest surrounding the castle, painted with cooler colors and somber, living the "Pafinis" and "Reufs" the characters marginalized "quadrociedade."

It turns out, however, that a "Toupin" - Branch (Adrien Larmande) - will fall for a "Pafinie" - Claire (Chloé Bertier) - and start questioning the status-quo of the table where he lives. Because the fact of being more or less painted painted makes someone superior to others? Who said this? Based on what?

And the leader of the "Toupins" tries to convince everyone that they were chosen by the painter. They are the elect of the Artist, the "all-painted", who would compose the picture in all its fullness and beauty! Forever!

So Branch is arrested for her defiance. But escapes and ends up being chased. With the help of Lola (Jessica Monceau) - a "Pafini" - and Plume (Thierry Jahn) - a "Reuf" - they break the boundaries of the table in an attempt to find the painter, only being able to restore order and equality under. They believe that once all painted, peace will reign in those parts.

Then there begins an adventure poetic, in which representatives of the three "quadrociedade" will traverse several frames in search of their Author.

The whole idea of ​​the movie is beautiful. The dialogues are super intelligent, deep and philosophical! The question of the relationship between an author and his work is very present! Outside is, of course, the whole question of divine creation, the equality of the races, etc, etc, etc.. Special mention to the dialogue between Lola and "Autoportrait" Artist - which is, incidentally, played by the Laguionie). Magnifique!

As for the aesthetics of film, his plans are beautiful paintings, fauvist, expressionist ... beautiful homage to Matisse, a Gauguin, Picasso and many artists of the modern world!

A film must for all who appreciate the arts, music, poetry, philosophy and beauty!
