Sight & Sound Challenge: Tale of Tales (1979)

Film: Tale of Tales (108/250) 
First Time/Rewatch: First Time 

This animated short feels like something you'd catch at an art show. It's a mix of animation styles, with no dialogue, and a lack of narrative.  It was constructed to feel like memories, and you can feel the confusion and hurt in the frames. Explosions. Couples dancing. All the men disappear. Only a couple return. A little grey wolf wandering throughout it all. The style is unlike anything I'd seen, and while I didn't understand all of it, I don't think I'm necessarily supposed to. It was an unexpected treat that I'd never heard of and would have never seen had it not been for this challenge.
