The Big Bad Fox and other tales
Benjamin Renner, Patrick Imbert
France / 2017 / 80'
From the creators of Academy Award-nominated animation feature, Ernest & Celestine comes a charming and hilarious collection of animated tales, which all take place on a farm. 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!
