Aubier and Patar aren't trying to make any profound statements about life or create any existential conundrums, they're just looking to entertain, and in A Town Called Panic, they have found a gloriously wacky avenue to do just that.

This is film is so hard to describe but it's just absurdist and ridiculous and...funny.

A Town Called Panic's frenetic pace and bizarre set pieces are truly refreshing and a joy to behold.

Bizarre and sophisticated enough for adults and children, A Town Called Panic makes you want to live in an upside-down house occupied by a horse.

The truth is that you have to be in the mood to enjoy this film without falling asleep, getting bored or confused. [Full review in Spanish]

A little goes a very long way, and even at 75 minutes it ends up feeling silly and self-indulgent.

The frenetic scenarios should play fairly well as energizing for kids and ridiculous for adults.

Stop-motion comedy adventure with subtitles, a few curses.

Anyone who has spent anytime around kids will know exactly what Aubier and Patar are trying to achieve.

Charming and highly original but a little of it goes a long way.

Though it probably works best in short bursts on DVD, it might just be wacky and strange enough to appeal to kids who'll simply accept it for what it is.

Chaotic, warped and impervious to logic a total treasure just waiting to be discovered.

A very small amount of this would be funny. But here, there's 77 minutes of it. And that's about 76 minutes and 30 seconds too much to stomach in one sitting.

Bounces around with a hyperactive dementia that somehow never flags.

Studded with surreal and unexpectedly tender touches (kamikaze cows, an elegantly lovestruck horse), this is plastic and fantastic.

Like a very lo-fi Toy Story with the vibe of a live-action Terry Gilliam cartoon and the addled craziness of SpongeBob SquarePants; it's funny for adults and children alike in a refreshing, barking mad sort of way.
