A FEATHER TALE

La basse cour

Directed by Michèle Cournoyer
Canada, 1992
Animation, Short

Synopsis

A woman, taking on her lover’s fantasies, adorns herself in her finest feathers and assumes a seductive but demeaning role. Caught up in his own game, the man plays on to the bitter end—a cruel game in which love is stripped of its golden glow, leaving only the naked reality of dependency.
