THE BIG BAD FOX AND OTHER TALES
DirS. Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert|Animation| France / Belgium | 2017 | 83 min. | All ages
From the creators of the Oscar-nominated Ernest & Celestine comes another hilarious, heartwarming tale of animal misfits: a fox who mothers a brood of chicks, a rabbit who plays a baby-delivering stork, and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus. This film has the pacing and spontaneity of Looney Tunes shorts, but underneath the gags (and there are plenty) it offers a sensitive portrayal of family and the anxieties of modern life.
