|Produced by||René Jodoin|
|Music by||Paul Cormier|
|Edited by||Claude Jobin|

In this 12-and-a-half-minute film, Pointu and his violin break into pieces that take on a life of their own, dancing to the artist's music.
The film was directed by Bernard Longpré and André Leduc and produced by René Jodoin for the National Film Board of Canada. Monsieur Pointu makes use of the pixillation technique pioneered by NFB animation studio founder Norman McLaren in Neighbours and A Chairy Tale, combined with optical effects.
