Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?

Year
2013
Country
France
Duration
88'’
Director
Michel Gondry

Through a series of interviews, Michel Gondry illustrates Noam Chomsky’s theories in an animated documentary, where the director’s creativity and imagination serve the linguist’s intellectual rigor. The lively, sometimes intricate, often touching and always very humane dialogue with Chomsky is depicted naturally by a stream of Gondry’s subjective animations. Using animated drawings, the artist brings to light the main character both as an eminent professor and as a man.
