Movie Info

We all have a stroke of bad luck from time to time, but Harvie Krumpet seems to be a special case. From the moment he was born, Harvie's life has been an unending series of unfortunate mishaps. From being born with Tourette's syndrome to succumbing to the ravaging effects of Alzheimer's disease in later years, the dark clouds gathered over Harvie's head have never ceased or parted, yet somehow this hapless soul seems to enjoy all of life's riches regardless. After all, what's life without a bit of struggle now and then to make you better appreciate the good things (like love, freedom, and nudity)? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

...a wonderfully irreverent animated film that follows an odd immigrant from birth to the final chapter in his life.

Audience Reviews for Harvie Krumpet

It's a rare film that is both whimsical and deeply moving. Harvie Krumpet is that kind of film.

It was well done in the gray scale. I love the narration. It's a very depressing story about Harvie, who can't have a single good thing happen to him. But it was funny.

This Oscar winning (2003) short film is a pure delight! Harvie Krumpet has every reason to give up on life, yet he meets every setback with an indomitable optimism. Half the fun is reading the various "fakts" Harvie learns along the way, having been trained by his mother to observe and learn from an early age. Wonderful visuals and a heart felt story make this a gem.
