Bout de Zan does what any normal kid would do.....well, maybe not.
3 April 2010 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Bout de Zan is a very precocious young man! When the circus comes to town, he does what any kid might do in this situation--he steals the circus' elephant!!! Later, he sits on the curb with the elephant and begs coins off people--with a sign saying 'blind since birth'. I am not sure if this is supposed to mean the kid or the animal! Later, the kid and elephant get in a lot of trouble but are rescued by a rich lady who takes them to live with her (again, that's probably what most people would do in a situation like this). And in the end, they sit around the table and have a nice meal--the kid, the lady AND the elephant!! Overall, this might just rank as the strangest silent I have ever seen.

Seeing a kid stealing an elephant and the elephant being so well-trained that it could do a lot of cool acting floored me. I especially loved seeing them at the table at the end--it was just surreal yet not a cartoon--they really did all this crazy stuff for the film. Very entertaining!
