Storyline

The sad, strange life of Harvie, who is born into an impoverished Middle European existence, and whose one constant is the book of "fakts" he keeps adding to, worn around his neck. After a childhood tragedy, he emigrates to Australia, where he has a succession of menial jobs, eventually ending up in a retirement home. Along the way, he has a string of bad luck, leaving him with, among other things, a steel plate in his skull that becomes a magnet. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Fantastic
27 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have always been a fan of stop-motion animation, but i stumbled upon this by accident. I was in Portugal and my family and i went back to the villa by myself early. I was flipping through the channels and I landed on Harvie Krumpet (Which I only found the title lately) with Portugese subtitles. So I stuck with it. I watched every minute of it. This was one of the most cruel, dark animations I've ever seen but I like that genre but through Harvies bad luck came good humour and I laughed the whole way through. Harvie's book of 'Fakts' gave us fantastic quotes like 'A cigarette is a substitute from your mothers bousm.' That was 7 months ago and while I was browsing through www.play.com today and said 'OMG it's him. Its released on DVD next month and I can't wait. If you ever get the opportunity to see this film SEE IT! This is the best clay-mation sort film I've seen since the 'Wallice & Gromit' series
