Friday Night Flicks: Léon The Professional and Il Etait Une Fois

Friday Night Flicks features two videos of pop-up books: Léon The Professional and Il Etait Une FoisLéon The Professional by Jeremias Krakowiak re-tells the story from the 1994 movie of the same name. The video clearly shows the working of the pop-up mechanisms, and I thought the use of the ‘waterfall’ structure worked particularly well suited for the inclusion of longer sections of text.



If you found that all a bit dark, tonight’s second video may make you feel more cheerful. Il Etait Une Fois is a pop-up book by Benjamin Lacombe. This promotional video follows the White Rabbit on a tour through the pop-ups, each of which represents a famous story.



If you think you would enjoy a movie about a twelve year old girl being trained as a hit man, you might find a copy to watch this weekend. Personally, I would rather re-read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
