Le jour des corneilles



Who is the game, you or him?

It's him.

It's the one that is chewable.

Understood? So, move it.

And don't fall behind.


It's done.

Did you carve him?

Yes, carved him. Sliced and chopped.

Come eat!

The body must be fattened

if you don't want

the outer-world to take you.

Is the outer-world interested in eaters?


No, never!

Hurry up, swallow.

This is something better than

the toads you roast.

Wrap your legs now, and sleep.

Father, can I?



Wow! Ah, ah!

Who is the game, is it me or you?

And the others?



How does that happen?


No, no toads.

They're too small.

Hey, look.


Wait a minute, you. You'll see.

Wait a minute.

Oh, no!



Did you see? What was that?

It's impossible?


How do you know that there is

nothing after the forest?

I know, that's all.

You tried to go there?

If you set foot outside the forest

you disappear forever.

Yes, I know.

Stop with your questions!

Don't you have work to do?

Yes, yes.


Can it be that some kind of...


who can walk outside of the forest

may not disappear?

Father, where are we going?

Do not be distracted, roll!

There is nothing else

than what you see here, son.


Our forest stands in the middle of the sky.

And the stars turn

around like the beast attached to his stake.

Your mother loved this forest.

Each of these trees.

And each of its scents.

And to you

isn't it enough for you!

You want to harm it, isn't it?

What are you scheming

with your questions?

There is nothing outside the forest,


You hear me?

- Yes.

So put it in your head!

Ah, ah!



It's nothing, it's...

It's true that I schemed questions.

You want me to tell you why?

It's not to cause any harm.

It's because earlier I saw an oddity.

A quirk maximally weird.

They looked like father and me.

And they walked outside of the forest.

Like that.

Do you realize?

They really looked like us, but...

Why are they outside of the forest, huh?

Why don't they disappear?

Do you think it's another kind of species?

A bit like us but not really like us?

So how does that happen?

You don't know?

It's okay. It's quirks.

There. Isn't it right?

Here, this is for you.

You'll see, there will be no more...

No more air draft.

It will be good.

You'll see, it will be fine.



Fetch some ropes quickly!

Don't be sluggish!

Hurry up!

Shake your fat.

They are here!

Back off, dirty monsters!

Bunch of skeletons of the outer-world!

I know it's you.

Turn back!

Leave me alone.

Dirty clowns.


You won't have me, you demons!

I'm not afraid of you,

you bunch of corpse draggers.

I'm not afraid of the outer-world.

Father, watch out! Father!

You will never take me.

Never! Ah, ah, ah!

Father, you've hurt?

Father, father, move!

Shake your fat.

Oh, no!

Stand up, say something.

Hey, ho!

Oh, where are you?

Oh, oh, where are you?

Father fell from the roof,

he doesn't want to move.

The sky cracked.

He believes it was you.

He was on the roof,

a tree burned and made him fall.

Well, can you heal him?

It's his leg.

Do you know how to heal legs?

Hey, where you going?


Oh, wait for me.

What are you doing?

Don't take him to the outer-world.

Why are you going this way?

You should not go there,

it will anger father.

And his leg? What will we do

for his leg?

What, but are you insane?

I don't want to disappear.

I won't disappear if I go?

And father neither?


The two that I saw, like father and me,

there was no weirdness.

Well, gosh?

Is it to find them that I have to go?
