Storyline

Except when there's people around, the mysterious woods of Cecebre resound with the conversation of the various animals and even the oaks, chestnuts, birches and weeping willows. But men plant what seems a leafless tree, actually a telephone pole, which also sprouts a mouth but speaks like his human makers. A scientist decides to catch one mole, Linda, for his dissertation, but his bossy wife, a 'fashionable' woman, takes it and wants them all to make fur-coats 'now mink is out'; Linda's lover Furi escapes, learns the truth which the trees heard from the telephone wires and sets out to the rescue in the human world, where everything natural is abused...

Trivia

The pole was designed to look like Nobel Prize winning writer Camilo José Cela. However, even the directors acknowledge that everybody tells them it reminds them of politician Manuel Fraga instead. See more »

Bad, bad bad
4 June 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

So, I watch the movie yesterday after I saw "Nocturna" and "The Dragons Hunters" and I found it ridiculous bad, especially I couldn't help myself not to compare with those 2. First the script. I don't know how god is the novel but the text here is awful, common and dull, worse then my conversation with my girlfriend in our bad days. The characters are so dull and not interesting, with no clue or personality, without color to make them stand out. The relation between the is almost inexistent and we can briefly understand that some mole is in love with another but that's it. The animation, God, I never so such bad 3D animation in my entire life. Is like a teenager who stated to work in 3D about 6 months ago is now trying to show us all he know about it. All characters are rigid with weird movements, no details to make them look natural, face expression looks like plastic, when they run you feel the need to look in some other parts because is so embarrassing. There are no details on the characters texture, fur looks like plastic. The only more or less interesting characters are the trees from the wood, but at some point you will start wondering why are there, what's the reason the director added those trees there other then there were in the original text from the novel. ALl in all this was the boredom of all animation I have ever seen, so you can skip it without any lose.
