Trivia

This film uses an unusual technique for cel animation: after the animation is completed on paper, the drawings are photocopied onto card, colored and painted with oil pastels, Indian ink and acrylic, cut out and applied to the cel using double-sided sellotape. This technique was used again for Jannik Hastrup's next three films: Dreaming of Paradise (1987), Fuglekrigen i Kanøfleskoven (1990) and Aberne og det hemmelige våben (1995). See more »

delightful,thoughtful,sad
28 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

This animated movie is one of the best ones I've seen. Forget Disney movies - although the animation may not match that of Disney cartoons, this one has much more to offer otherwise: messages of love and unity, of loneliness and contentedness and much more. It also points to man's folly of whale hunting and thus it somewhat resembles Melville's Moby Dick. I recommend this to anyone and everyone.
