Joei de vivre
(Anthony Gross & Hector Hoppin/1934)
"...in this case a sophisticated version of Perrault's Cinderella. Instead of working from designs from children's illustrated books, this film incorporates elements from French art nouveau posters, the fine art of Matisse and visual ideas from the Post Impressionists and Italian Futurists. The choreography is very imaginative, and constantly plays with the movement of the two dimensional abstractions in three dimensional space."
