  • Animated and live action
  • "With very few exceptions, their films have no meaningful spoken dialogue -- most have no spoken content at all, while some, such as The Comb (From the Museums of Sleep) (1990) include multilingual background gibberish that is not intended to be coherently understood. Accordingly, their films are highly reliant on their music scores, many of which have been written especially for them by the Polish composer Leszek Jankowski"--Wikipedia
