Storyline

Based on a Norwegian folk tale, with the addition of a second tale and a scene from a third. - The basic story: Mr. Fox is dead. His widow, Reve-enka (literally "the fox widow"), sits alone in her empty house with only her trusty feline maid Korse for company. Three suitors - the Bear, the Wolf and a young Fox - come to her door. There is no prize for guessing who wins her favour. The story is told in typical fairy tale style, with repetitions and characters speaking partly in rhyme. (There is also a live action opening and ending claiming to show how story collector Asbjørnsen discovered the original tale and recorded it for posterity.) Written by Ragnar Fyri

Caprino's Most Wonderful Folktale
21 April 2002 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

Ivo Caprino is probably the most famous Norwegian film name, and I have not forgotten about Liv Ullmann. He passed away of old age last year. He has earned his tremendous reputation mostly because of his feature-length animated film Flåklypa Grand Prix, but there is not a Norwegian child (or adult) who hasn't seen some of his infamous shorts as well, such as Reve-enka. This short and beautiful story is filled with love and nostalgia. No one ever told a folktale like Ivo Caprino - King of Norwegian animation.

Rating: 9/10
