Excellent film
15 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is a terrific film. Great story and compelling animation all told from the view point of the monster Grendel. There is drama and humor mixed with a retelling of the ancient tale of Beowulf. Grendel becomes a very sympathetic character, his fate tragic. The humans in this story are nowhere near as compassionate as the monster. And it becomes a study in how inhuman man is, especially to himself.

Animation lovers must see this film. I don't know the availability of this film in the states as I haven't seen this for at least 10 years. Nor have I seen this available on VHS. So if you find it, rent it or buy it. It really is that good.
