Jean-François Laguionie, France – 2011 – 1h16min – Animation
Three characters of different social classes escape their unfinished painting in search of the Painter, hoping he will complete it. For mysterious reasons, a Painter has left a work incomplete – causing conflict between the Toupins (Allduns), who are entirely painted, the Pafinis (Halfies), who lack a few colors, and the Reufs (Sketchies), who are only sketches. Toupins occupy the chateau, Pafinis are out in the gardens, and Reufs are treated as outcasts and hunted by the Toupins. Three friends, one of each class, go on a quest to find the artist so he can finish the piece and hopefully unite the people.
