Storyline

Pelle is a cat who was born without a proper tail. He compensates this by studying hard and, much to the dismay of his archrival Måns, receives a fancy degree very few cats in Sweden have obtained. Some time later he is visited by his relative Pelle Swanson who invites him over to visit his new home country America. There everything is bigger, even the rats are much fatter. Everything seems possible in America, even the prospect of finally having a proper tail and a sweetheart to call one's own. Written by Markku Kuoppamäki

A truly strange film
2 May 2006 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I grew up watching Peter No-Tail and still today enjoy watching the original film. I enjoy cartoons in general. But this sequel is such a strange film that I have never been able to watch it thru. There's something very strange in how everything is drawn. It's not necessarily bad (though this is a Swedish low budget film), it's just very strange. I like bizarre films, Cronenberg and Lynch are some of my favourite directors, but this film is simply too bizarre and absurd. I guess the film feels so strange partly because you realize that the authors weren't trying to make a strange film. I am sure they had a great vision about the film, but somehow they went too far. Watching this film feels like an LSD overdose. It's a truly strange film. I recommend this film, but be prepared to not being able to finish it.
