Movie Info

From the creators of the Academy Award (R)- nominated Ernest & Celestine comes another hilarious, heartwarming tale of animal misfits destined to become a classic. 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! Directors Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert adapt Renner's own acclaimed graphic novel into a delirious, delightful triptych of interlocking stories, with a pacing and visual spontaneity that harkens back to classic Looney Tunes shorts and slapstick two-reelers. But underneath the gags (and there are plenty of them), the three stories offer a sensitive and beautiful portrayal of family, and the anxieities of modern life.

Renner and Imbert spend more time dishing out jokes than they do weaving the kind of meaningful narrative that made Ernest & Celestine so special, yet while Fox is more of a slaphappy romp than a morality play, there's still a method to the madness.

The look is old-fashioned, but not quite so old-fashioned as some of the references. How many modern children will understand why a long-necked wading bird is delivering babies?

Perhaps the episodic structure and the simple visuals make it better suited to home viewing than to a cinema session, but it's a very likeable movie in its way.

The result is a kooky farmyard-set compendium that has the manic energy of the best Ice Age movies as well as, occasionally, the delicate heart of a Pixar classic.

It's touching, funny stuff, and not at all post-modern, thank God.

It does move at a great pace, not least because of the animation.
