Takis Candilis – Petites métamorphoses AKA Small metamorphoses (1975)

Synopsis
‘Small metamorphoses’ is the name of an old game: different body parts drawn on cardboard were assembled to form endlessly varying characters. A couple and their child. The metamorphosis acts on the characters thanks to a catalyst which is time. This couple refuses this child in order to forget the failure of their love.
