Storyline

It isn't a really good day in the life of caveman Brog. His wife Oola has just thrown out most of his stuff. Apparently she wants a tidy cave. But Brog isn't ready to part from his belongings yet. He is especially attached to his mysterious stone which he uses for hunting. This day he isn't very lucky however. With an empty stomach and soaked by rain, he returns home. Close to his, he hears Oola screaming. The cave is under attack by a vicious bear. Brog doesn't hesitate a moment. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Yet another brilliant CG film from Blur Studios
10 March 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Although not seen as one of "the big boys" like Pixar, Dreamworks or Fox, tiny little Blur Studios is making a big name for itself with some tremendous short films. Not only did they make the Academy Award nominated film GOPHER BROKE, but they made some films which I think are even better, such as A GENTLEMEN'S DUEL. IN THE ROUGH is one of their earlier works, though it is every bit as beautifully rendered as their other films--as pretty as anything by the big name studios. Unlike the competition, though, the films of Blur have all been shorts. Given the quality and fun I've seen in them, I really hope they one day try a full-length film or at least keep putting out more of these lovely shorts.

IN THE ROUGH is about a caveman who is in the midst of an argument with his mate. Their language is gibberish to us, but it's pretty easy to guess what is occurring. After he leaves the cave, our hero comes upon a huge and nasty beast that tries to eat him--leading to a cute conclusion where he not only defeats the creature but wins back his lady's love.

Excellent animation and fun--give this one a try.
