Trivia

This film uses an unusual technique for cel animation: after the animation is completed on paper, the drawings are photocopied onto card, colored and painted with oil pastels, Indian ink and acrylic, cut out and applied to the cel using double-sided sellotape. This technique was used again for Jannik Hastrup's next two films: Dreaming of Paradise (1987), War of the Birds (1990) and The Secret Weapon (1995). See more »

Amazing!
15 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This animation based on the book, The Song of the Whale, is probably the greatest animation ever created. Samson is a young whale with a serious personality disorder who, through his lack of friends (besides an annoying sea gull), becomes obsessed with the stories of Moby Dick told by his mother. Basically the plot line is Samson searching for Moby Dick to help save the whales from the iron beasts (whalers). It's a great story and takes us deep into the depths of the ocean where we learn about the fun and danger of being a whale. From playing dead, to pestering polar bears, to oil spills, to a crazy walrus duo messed up on toxic waste doing a dance number and singing in gibberish. This movie definitely gets an excellent review from me, and trust me it's not just a kids movie. I first saw it at the age of 22 and I've loved it every since. I recommend watching it with a good friend with a pure heart and a little green.
