As a means of welcoming the arrival of warm weather, this production team created a delightful animated video rendition of a children’s poem about a forest full of animals celebrating spring.

The video, which is called “Two Snails Set Off”, is based on the French poem “Song of the Snails Who Went to Burial” written by Jacques Prévert.

The poem is about two snails who are mourning a dead leaf in autumn. Because it takes so long for them to get to the dead leaf’s funeral, however, it is already spring by the time the snails arrive.

So as a means of cheering the grieving snails, the sun and animals tell the mourners to shed their dark colors and have a glass of beer to celebrate the warm weather and renewed colors of nature.

The delightful Tapioca Films video hosts a plethora of renowned French actors for the voices of the animals, such as Audrey Tautou from “Amélie” – and in addition to its star-studded cast, it was chosen as a “Vimeo Staff Pick”.
