Storyline

Gurin the gnome loves to play tricks on others. In spite of several warnings he just can't help himself, and one morning he wakes up with a foxtail as punishment. Rumors of his fabulous tail soon reach the capital, and the widow Stengelføhn-Glad tries to hire private detective Solan Gundersen to find Gurin. She wants to be the envy of her upper-class friends by owning the luxurious foxtail. But Solan and his sidekick Ludvig doesn't want to see Gurin come to harm. And after refusing the assignment they set out to find the gnome before the widow does. Written by Signy

Good art, weak story
17 March 1999 | by (Trondheim, Noway) – See all my reviews

Ah, well, it's sorry to say that I didn't enjoy it as much as I expected. The animation and graphic arts are wonderful and the backgrounds are breathtaking, but the story.... I mean why they even mention Solan in the title? He disappears after the half of the film and basically a side kick than the main character.

I don't know Aukust world well, and I was very disappointed that they didn't even try to explain the characters for those new to them. I would say it is rather strange attitude in a production that they didn't think of other than Norwegian audience who knows every single of Aukust work. I mean what is so funny about a widow chasing a boy with a fox tail? I'm sure if I read the book with all written humor, I would find it funny, but the bare fact of storyline and confusing disappearences of some characters doesn't make sense to me at all.

Small country like Norway should think big, specially in animation which can easily attract foreign children's film market. I loved Flåklypa Grand Prix and I don't think the new production will not be as successful in the international market as Grand Prix. Why they satisfied with a small success in Norway while they could do the same in the world? It's a mystery.
