Saturday Morning Cartoons: "Lucia, Luis, and the Wolf"

Lucia, Luis, and the Wolf

Lucía, Luis and the Wolf: Two parts that can be watched separately. Seriously, these are super scary. In Spanish, with subtitles—although for those who, like me, don’t understand Spanish,  you may find that feelings of fear and claustrophobia from the drawing, stop motion, and sound make it very difficult to read along.  (3.50 minutes, 4.03 minutes)

The scratchy whispers really do it. Charcoal-like drawings on the wall make a nice way to slowly encompass the room and make the claustrophobia really hit home, but I think the jerky framerate and the breathy narration make the kinda-incomprehensible story/dialogue feel like a darkness gathering.

I was thinking as I watched this, also, that without the accompanying images, that narration would really just come across as a little girl's bizarre and sort of breathless story. I know children who tell tales just like that-- all rushed and overlapping.
