Watch: Michel Gondry Wishes You a Happy New Year In Animated Short ‘Haircut Mouse’

Written by on January 4, 2013 

It may be a few days late, but show some compassion when this New Year’s greeting is an animated short. Before he delivers a pair of seemingly-different films over the next twelve months (those being Mood Indigo and The We and the I), Michel Gondry has emerged to deliver Haircut Mouse, a little piece concerning a barber rodent. Also one he (I swear) plays in the film’s brief opening moment.

There’s none of the strange emotional current which defines his work — save for the end, if you really want to make that case — but in only three-and-a-half minutes does this feel like a more accurate expression of Gondry‘s interests than all of The Green Hornet. And it’s already the most entertaining thing any filmmaker has put out in 2013 — something I say without having seen Texas Chainsaw 3D.

You can watch it below (via ThePlaylist):

Did you enjoy this little window into Gondry’s warped artistic mind?
