Až přijde kocour/ The Cassandra Cat / The Cat Who Wore Sunglasses / When the Cat Comes rewatch recently (’63 Cannes Special Jury Prize!). Even more than the scene in which the audience springs into colour once the sunglasses come off, I like the free feeling of the classroom at the beginning, the children painting with their hands and their tongues out. Some are super fast and assured, others look nervously at what’s happening on the next desk. Made me want to rewatch Small Change, big fave.

This girl in the harlequin print smock has a good attitude:
use what vous got.

Four-eyes on the right inspects his pal’s painting nervously but no need! Kid’s good. See him on Circ Spex

This one’s particularly good, painted with much speed too.

And of course, a wizard.
