Madame Tutli-Putli

I finally watched the 2007 stop-motion animation Madame Tutli-Putli by Chris Lavis and Meciek Szczerbowski. It received numerous nominations and wins for various awards, including an oscar nomination. This animation follows the journey of Madame Tutli-Putli as she boards the Night Train, carrying with her tons of luggages and items. After robbers break in and gas the passengers to sleep, Madame Tutli-Putli wakes up to find that all her belongings as well as all the passengers are gone. This story becomes more of a metaphysical journey of letting go of one’s past. This amazing animation, with its innovative stop-motion animation techniques, took more than five years to make. The eyes of the puppets are composited human eyes from real actors, as a result giving the puppets realistic eye movement.
