The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales at MoMI

"The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales" by Benjamin Renner & Patrick Imbert

As a part of the new monthly screening series for animated films, "World of Animation,"   Museum of the Moving Image presents Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert's The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales

The countryside is not always as calm and peaceful as it is 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! Creators of the Academy Award–nominated Ernest & Celestine, Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert adapt Renner’s own acclaimed graphic novel into a delirious, delightful triptych of interlocking stories, with slapstick pacing and visual spontaneity that harken back to classic Looney Tunes shorts. Their lively hand-drawn animation, dappled with delicate watercolor, is brought to life by a voice cast—both French and Enlgish—with excellent comic timing. Recommended for ages 5+ but a delight for adults, too.
