This unusual feature (a French-Belgian- Luxembourgian co-production), with its lead cast consisting entirely of stop motion-animated children’s toys.
The premise concerns two such toys – Cowboy and Indian – who plan to buy a birthday gift for their friend Horse but accidentally destroy his house. A series of often hallucinatory adventures ensues that finds the trio journeying to the center of the earth, wandering across icy tundra and discovering a strange aquatic world inhabited by oddball beings with pointed heads.
This film is part of Comedy Genius, a nationwide season led by BFI, the Independent Cinema Office and BFI Film Audience network, supported by funds from the National Lottery. For more screenings go to bficomedy.co.uk.
If someone laced Wallace and Gromit’s stockpile of West Country cheeses with hallucinogens... TIME OUT
