SLEEPING BETTY

Posted by JAHsayf on Mar. 02, 2010

http-//www.nfb.ca/webextension/isabelle-au-bois-dormant In a sumptuous palace in the basement of a house in a Montreal working-class neighbourhood, Princess Betty sleeps in a narcoleptic stupor. The king is at her bedside. He appeals to Uncle Henri VIII, Aunt Victoria, an emotional alien, a cool witch and, why not, a handsome prince! This worthy Prince Charles lookalike has to leave his royal suburb, confront a Canadian dragon and brave a surreal set of road rules in order to save the princess. But will Betty be wakened with just a kiss? Sleeping Betty is the Perrault classic done with Claude Cloutiers sharp pen. His detailed drawings in Indian ink conjure up caricature and Victorian engravings in a disjointed, anachronistic and playful setting.
