This short film was shown during Michele Whaley and Betsy Paskvan during their presentation on MovieTalk at NTPRS 2013. It is a great little video with a funny ending!
Co-written by Thomas Gaudin and its director, Philippe Orreindy, I’ll Wait For The Next One (J’attendrai le Suivant) was nominated for the 2003 Oscar for Best Short. I’ll Wait For The Next One is a bitter-sweet tale of a lonely woman being offered the chance of true love on the Paris metro.

This website has a great selection of French animated video clips. Each animated story is about 10 minutes long and are narrated in French. You can even find the story of the Hockey Sweater here, or “Le chandail”: “Ce court métrage d’animation ressuscite l’époque des années 1940, où tous les jeunes étaient subjugués par leur idole, Maurice Richard. L’écrivain Roch Carrier n’y échappa point et il nous livre ici, avec humour et nostalgie, les impressions et les sentiments d’une enfance empreinte des modèles du temps.”
