Like both Stan Vanderbeek and Larry Jordan, Borowczyk saw the potential of animating cut outs from Victorian encyclopedias and novels. Like Lenica’s The Labyrinth (completed the same year), Borowczyk takes the idea at the heart of Max Ernst’s graphic novel Une semaine de bonté (A Week of Kindness), and makes it move for both comic and surrealistic effect.
