Stille Nacht II: Are We Still Married?

Brothers Quay (1991)

A three-minute animated choreography with an ethereal pop soundtrack by the remarkable band called His Name Is Alive. With a typically eccentric cast of a ragged doll, a white rabbit and a manic ping-pong ball, the Quays construct a hypnotic, beguiling, and vaguely menacing ballet—something like a music video made by Max Ernst. In beautifully textured black & white, ARE WE STILL MARRIED? is a small work, but it is as accomplished and unforgettable as their very best.
