Storyline

An eccentric toymaker's last wish is that his brother takes over the running of the business. The brother is a military General, and is out of touch with toymaking, and out of touch with reality too. The business should really have been given to Leslie, who was much more like his toymaking father. When the General starts making weapons instead of toys, Leslie decides to take action. Written by Rob Hartill

Trivia

In the arcade sequence, where a child is shown playing one of the military games of a helicopter destroying civilian vehicles, a "kill" monitor is visible at the bottom of the screen listing the number of cars destroyed by model. Only the Volvo column is still at zero kills, an in-joke referring to the Volvo's legendary safety and indestructibility. See more »

Goofs

In the arcade scene, a cabinet of the Konami shoot 'em up Lightning Fighters is shown. However, upon seeing the game itself, it is actually the Sega flight simulator Strike Fighter. See more »

A wonderfully misunderstood and neglected work of genius
16 March 2000 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of my all-time favourite films, in the same league as "Run Lola Run", "Pi", and "Contact" for films that make you feel something you've always known to be true but just weren't quite aware of. Never have I seen such a subtle and innocent social critique. Amazing visuals, wacky sound effects, and a well-suited musical score add tremendously to the already brilliant plot. This film is much more than a simple movie, it is a work of art. Consider yourself lucky if you get to see this gem, for most will surely overlook it.
