The Ballad of the Green Wood

category: Moviesdirector:Jirí Bartaruntime:8 minyear: 1983
genres: Animation Short Romance
Cycles of life, with fantasy elements. An ax splits wood. Bits of split wood move in stop-motion; one piece has a woman's face near the top. Water streams in torrents; patches of snow give way to spring. A large black bird flies into the frame. It attacks and splinters the wood with the woman's face. The piece of wood, whole again, becomes the bird's body. It flies about, and it's celebrated by other bits of wood. Then, a man leaves a house carrying an empty pail. He gathers bits of wood. A chimney smokes.

The Ballad of the Green Wood reviews

The former Czechoslovakia has produced noted stop motion animators like Jiří Trnka (known as the Walt Disney of Eastern Europe), Jan Švankmajer (an undeniable influence on Terry Gilliam and Tim Burton) and Jiří Barta. The latter's short films include "Balada o zeleném dřevu" ("A Ballad about Green Wood" in English). It shows what appears to be a series of free-associative images looking at the changing seasons, along with wood getting chopped, and a bird who eats some of the wood and his a mind-bending experience. Lots of the Czech stop motion cartoons were like this, with plots that sometimes gave "Yellow Submarine" a run for its money. And I've liked every one that I've seen, including this one.
