Likeness, outline and message
27 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dot and the Koala might well be described as a tamer version of George Orwell's "Animal Farm" with a twist. Somewhat domestic animals are used to portray humans of society (such as cats, dogs, pigs and horses) whereas the wild animals (koalas, kangaroos, wombats etc) are simply the animals of the Austrailian outback.

The wild animals rebel against society's idea of "progress" and keeping up with the times, because it threatens their very way of life. With exceeding effort, they thwart the opening and construction of a dam to preserve their natural habitat. Animals vs animals makes this film a little easier to watch due to its message: progress for you might mean destruction for someone else.

The characterization and throw-away lines help to make this film accessible rather than a lecture on saving the planet. However, the fades between actual footage and the animation inform us of the realities of our progress and prompt us to think about the consequences.
