When the subject of the Winter’s Tale was brought up in recent times, what came to mind was the play by William Shakespeare (1564 to 1616).
Shakespeare’s Winter’s Tale, first published in 1623, is “unshakeable” thanks to the unforgettable lectures from great literature teachers during my schooling days.
Cartier’s animated Winter Tale is different in the sense that it reminds us once again that it is Christmas and this is the time to partake in the spirit of giving and sharing.
This short animated film was directed by Eric “Bibo” Bergeron. Bergeron also directed the animated movie “A Monster in Paris” (2011) and was co-director of “Shark Tale” (2004).
In Cartier’s Winter Tale, the fourth in the series, Cartier page boys and a young panther cub deliver Christmas goodies to a home.
The animated film throws up gift ideas such as the fascinating Montre Rotonde de Cartier Mystery watch and love rings.
Speaking of which, love is the common underlying theme in both Shakespeare’s Winter’s Tale and Cartier’s Winter Tale.
As such, do have a Merry Christmas with all your loved ones!
