Hello.

I have a question to your members and was wondering if you could ask
it for me. I was an animation student, but now am an english
teacher, so i don't think i would be that regular of a poster, so
membership might not work out for me.

When i was a child, up here in Canada, i watched a animated film over
the christmas holiday. I do not remember much about the film but it
has haunted me since. For some reason i think it was a french film,
but i am not sure. All i remember is that it was about a couple
trying to escape a large, seemingly deserted city. The streets seemed
empty, and the forces against sent something (perhaps a mechanical
device?) to prevent their escape. This would have been in the 1980's
sometime.

I was wondering if you could throw this esoteric bit of trivia to the
members of your community as it i believe it is the kind of 'red meat'
that the lovers of an artform like to chew on. thanks.

Sounds like it could possibly be Paul Grimmault's LE ROI ET L'OISEAU (THE KING AND THE BIRD) .
