Saturday Morning Cartoons Could Fall For You: “À quoi ca sert l’amour?” and “The Invention of Love”

À quoi ca sert l’amour?: The title says it all. The song by Edith Piaf and Théo Sarapo, and the simple yet expressive character design is what makes this film. (3:03 minutes)

The Invention of Love: Machine and nature in a steampunk universe. Man and woman in a story of love. Shadow and light in a beautiful film influenced by Lotte Reiniger. (9:45 minutes)
