Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase Review
Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase is a 1992 Oscar winning animated short film that is for art fans alone.
The film consists of various images of famous paintings and the selling point is that each painting gets morphed into the next one. That is the point of this film and it has nothing else to offer besides that. Certainly the animation is strong and artistic and the animator pulled of this trick remarkably well for 1992, but it is still boring.
It is the kind of film that is unfortunately only suited for art majors and people who are really interested and know a lot about art. I personally have weak knowledge of that and thus I only recognized a couple of paintings here. The film is definitely a very boring watch.
Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase has great animation, but despite that selling point, it doesn’t have a lot else to offer and is very boring and too artistic.
