Madame Tutli-Putli

I’m not sure how Madame Tutli-Putli managed to escape me in 2007.

This beautifully crafted short film won an Academy Award. The animation is stunning, and although the plot is left open to interpretation, I quite enjoyed the mystery.

Plus, they really capture the experience of being an introvert on a train (I related to Madame’s timidity on public transportation more than I’d like to admit).

Make what you will of the literal and metaphorical imagery found here, and don’t miss it if you love stop motion animation.

You can watch the film here.

    I, too, just saw “Mme. Tutli-Putli” for the first time – on TV- Sundance or Indie. Perhaps because of my age ( over 65 ) the movie is less mysterious than simply an artistic way of expressing the reality of the end of life:
    From the beginning, I interpreted that a) her train journey is her death (many clues starting with the “baggage” at the beginning); b) the train is her crematorium and c) her soul (the moth/butterfly in most Eastern religions) is released by cremation,
    And her name, “Tutli-Putli” – while probably nonsensical. has a distinctive Hindu quality. Lyrical, down-to-earth, and existential!
