Synopsis

Whoever thinks the countryside is calm and peaceful is mistaken. On a farm we find a collection of particularly agitated animals: a fox that mothers a family of chicks, a rabbit that acts like a stork, and a duck who wants to replace Santa Claus. If you want to take a quiet vacation, keep driving…

Award winning filmmaking team Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert (Ernest & Célestine, 2009) adapted this collection of three animated tales from Renner’s own graphic novels. With pure burlesque moments and much attention to charming details, The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales is a family-friendly film with a unique 2D hand-drawn animation style which creates a raw sketch-pad effect that is visually captivating.
