Prop & Berta is the story of a friendship between a little stout man and a big and proud cow, who are able to talk to each other. Together they confront an ugly and evil witch who is determined to get rid of them because they have moved into a house on the edge of her wood. The witch hates neighbours and through magic and evil planning she turns Prop and Berta's friends, the Teeny burpers, into dangerous hoodlums who begin to terrorize the nearby town. Prop and Berta manage to overcome the witch and turn her into a good person, restoring peace in the little town and breaking the spell which binds their friends. Written by
Hilarious Danish stop-motion about a guy and a cow.
In between his social comment trilogy, beginning with Bænken, Per Fly has directed this funny little kid-flick. The animation is nicely done and the film brings a lot of laughs. Mainly, this is for the youngest children but the fast paced innocent story and the somewhat smooth stop-motion technique appealed to me. All right, I'm a sucker for stop-motion, and this isn't exactly the Nightmare Before Christmas, but it's sweet, fun and well put together.
Any kid should love this, and some parents will appreciate the absurdness in some of the scenes.
