'The Stone of Folly' provides the cure.
9 January 2003 | by edutraSee all my reviews

Simply put - this is a beautiful film. Inspired by the Bosch painting ' A Cure for Folly', it is set in a medieval 'hospital' where many of the days inspired cures are practiced. The opening scene with a patient and a hammer sets the tone for this inspired dark comedy.

The Stone of Folly is a beautifully animated film with stunning art direction and a great story. If your a fan of stop-motion animation you should see this if you haven't yet. It deservedly won the Jury Prize at Cannes and might be available soon from the National Film Board, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
