The Big Bad Fox And Other Tales (U) 81mins

From the creators of the Oscar-nominated Ernest & Celestine comes another hilarious, heartwarming tale of animal misfits destined to become a classic.

The countryside isn't always as calm and peaceful as it's made out to be, and the animals on this farm are particularly agitated: a fox who mothers a family of chicks, a rabbit who plays the stork, and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus. If you think life in the country is a walk in the park, think again! Directors Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert adapt Renner's own acclaimed graphic novel into a delirious, delightful triptych of interlocking stories, with a pacing and visual spontaneity that harkens back to classic Looney Tunes shorts and slapstick two-reelers. But underneath the gags (and there are plenty of them), the three stories offer a sensitive and beautiful portrayal of family, and the anxieities of modern life.

'a kooky farmyard-set compendium that has the manic energy of the best Ice Age movies as well as, occasionally, the delicate heart of a Pixar classic'  The Times

'The fusion of the performers' droll delivery, the spare yet expressive character designs and well-observed movement creates a real warmth and wit'  The Guardian

'The hand-drawn, 2D animation is utterly beguiling, conveying the pleasingly nostalgic feel of a beloved children's book. It's also beautifully paced...'  The List
