This animation about a heroic knight ends with a tragic twist

Don't watch Un Conte unless you're prepared to be sad for the rest of the day. This brief, beautifully animated short film follows a knight's quest to rescue a woman in peril, but reality proves far crueler than fantasy.


Heads up: This one contains images of domestic violence.

Un Conte was directed by Guillaume Arantes and produced by Gobelins, l'école de l'image.
