The Heart is a Metronome

2007, Jean-Charles Mbotti Malolo

Jean-Charles Mbotti Malolo is both an animation director and a dancer, and he deftly combines his two interests in The Heart is a Metronome. A young man leaves home after an argument with his quick-tempered father, but the two reunite by communicating through their shared language of dance. The director's dance background is made evident through the fluid choreography of the animation.
