Film Description [in French] :
"La situation paradoxale de l'homme dans l'univers, son besoin d'absolu et d'évasion hors du réel, la complexité des rapports que suscite l'existence d'autrui et le pouvoir que détient l'amour de transformer la vie, tels sont les principaux thèmes soulevés dans ce tableau coloré où beauté et laideur alternent, comme dans toute existence."
-- Office national du film du Canada (source)

Film Description:
"Eyes may be the windows of the soul, but when the gaze is directed outward they become much more than organs for perceiving the world, they become also an instrument of involvement in all of life's drama. In this highly imaginative animation film, one disembodied eye (one is all it takes) embarks on life's adventures, entering into and disengaging from all the many passions, vicissitudes and conflicts that beset one's course."
-- National Film Board of Canada (source)
