    Synopsis


    Monster in the Forest: The Story of the Cyclop
    Bear witness as a legendary but near-forgotten work of art returns to life as filmmakers Louise Faure and Anne Julien tell the remarkable story of sculptors Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle's awe-inspiring work - The Cyclop. Constructed in a park on the outskirts of Paris and comprised of winding metal stairways, working fountains, and narrow footbridges, The Cyclops houses a variety of noisy gears and compelling gadgets designed by such renowned artists as Eva Aeppli, Larry Rivers, and Jean-Pierre Raynaud. A breathtaking monument to creativity that was twenty-years in the making, The Cyclop features all the defining traits of a sculpture created as part of the Nouveau Realisme movement, and has endured to serve as a shining example of Tinguely's "anti-museum" approach to modern art. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
