It’s very rare where mixed media film actually contain great animation. But this French film by Julien Neel defied the norm to integrate some very lovely anime-styled images in a live-action film narrative. The film is called Lou! Journal Infime, and in it are four animated sequences created by Yapiko animation.

In the film, Lou is a shy but thoughtful young girl with a profound imagination. As she charts the uneasy road of her early adolescence, Lou retreats to comfort of her sketchbook where her sci-fi alter-ego mother Sidera blasts across the galaxy in her Space Whale-ship and rides bodybuilding My Little Pony centaurs across sugar-coated dunes of dessert (get it?) planets. Can you dig it?

We have to say, Sidera is super hot. Like a weird, fantastical female Space Dandy, with equally luxurious hair. See one of the animated segments that appears in the film below:
