This outstanding, laugh-a-minute animation from the team behind Ernest & Celestine (LFF2012, Family Gala) is guaranteed to appeal to adults as much as it will children. This charming trio of farmyard tales introduces us to a world of animals with identity issues, who are unable to fit into traditional roles in the pecking order and are constantly trying to outsmart each other. ‘A Baby to Deliver’ sees a rabbit, pig and duck delivering a new-born baby for a stork, only to discover what a huge responsibility it is. In ‘The Big Bad Fox’, the eponymous villain’s plan to steal eggs backfires when his dinner – the newly hatched baby chicks – believe he is their mother. And in ‘The Perfect Christmas’, animals take on a frantic mission to find a new Santa Claus. Benjamin Renner adapts his own comic book for the big screen, with lovingly crafted, hand-drawn animation bringing his illustrations gloriously to life. If you’re expecting these farmyard animals to be cute and cuddly, think again. These are fast-talking, wise-cracking, witty characters. The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales will warm your heart as it makes you laugh out loud.
