Allegro Non Troppo

Movie: Allegro Non Troppo
Director: Bruno Bozzetto
Produced by:
Released By:
MPAA Rating:

Something of a Fantasia for adults, Allegro Non Troppo intercuts slapstick live-action sequences — which relay the story of a beleaguered animator’s ongoing battle with an Oliver Hardy-like orchestra conductor — and animated sequences, set to classical music, which visually interpret selected works of Debussy, Dvorak, Ravel, Sibelius, Vivaldi, and Stravinsky. The liveliest piece, set to Ravel’s Bolero, delineates a series of “spontaneous generations” from an abandoned Coke bottle. The most haunting piece, set to Sibelius’ Valse Triste, depicts a forlorn cat wandering the ruins of a condemned building and constantly hallucinating that he is back in the lap of luxury. Allegro Non Troppo is the brainchild of gifted Italian animator Bruno Bozzetto.
