The new cinematic short L’Odyssée de Cartier beautifully depicts the company’s inspiration for its art through a short, visual tour-de-force. Centered around a jewel-encrusted leopard statue that literally sparks to life, the film follows the feline adventurer as it escapes the gallery and proceeds to travel across a dream-inspired landscape. 

The scene composition in L’Odyssée de Cartier is stunning, capturing the grace of the leopard as it traverses across the dreamscape, from gallery to China to the back of a giant elephant. Accompanying the leopard’s journey is a powerful orchestral score that, when paired with the visual surrealism, creates an utterly sublime viewing experience.

The close ups and CGI in L’Odyssée de Cartier does an excellent job of showcasing the designer’s new line of jewelry in a way that complements the film’s aesthetic prowess.
