A fifty years old chemist, Olivier, does everything in order to hide his baldness from his wife. Worried that she might not love him with his hairless head, he has created a skillful routine to disguise it. But one day, Olivier is forced to use an extreme solution that might affect the couple’s life.
Made with great animation technique, the short film is in balance between an original story and a tribute to classical fairy tales like Rapunzel or Beauty and the Beast. The humour is universally understandable. The aesthetics of the figures moving in this film is that of a water-colour painting. This animation has a smooth development, an engaging rhythm and an appropriate running time.
