Arithmétique from Giovanni Munari on Vimeo.

Tick, tick, tick... who's afraid of Arithmetic? On a cloudy afternoon, a young boy is kidnapped by an eccentric old man who emerges from his book of math problems and leads him into a nightmarish vortex of muddled numbers and tasks without direction. Loosely based on a libretto by Colette, this illustrated short was co-directed by Giovanni Munari and Dalila Rovazzani for Italy’s Experimental Film Center.
