Animal Resnais

The first frame here caught my eye upon watching, for the first time, the first half of Alain Resnais's two-part Smoking/No Smoking earlier this week, and spurred on a general reflection of the many times Resnais has merged people with animals, using the transformation to reach a higher truth, be it emotional, intellectual, or spiritual. These are the instances I recalled - any I missed?

[From top to bottom: Smoking (first half of Smoking/No Smoking, 1993); Je t'aime, je t'aime (1968); Mon oncle d'Amerique (1980); I Want to Go Home (1989); Wild Grass (2009)]
