We follow the hilarious yet moving adventures of Renart in this animation, as he shows how a quick mind can triumph over brute strength. The wily fox is an outlaw at odds with the laws of his society and has a liberal attitude to the property of others. But his motive is well intended.

RENART the FOX, a nice movie
7 September 2005 | by mariepattinSee all my reviews

Don't listen to bad critics! Renart The Fox is a beautiful movie for children, with a nice and funny story, very stylised pictures, like somehow illustrations in motion, not at all pretentious and well done! My children loved it and this is all that matters. For people that are looking after adults animation, stick to AKIRA guys…and do not forget to read the age target next time on the poster before you get into the cinema just like you do for Winnie the Pooh! I don't think either that a European feature director has the same possibilities than an American one. Every body knows that Europeans budgets are making this kind of adventure a challenge. So, I congratulate and encourage Thierry Schiel to continue doing nice movies for children, no matters the ridiculous ignorance of some would be critic. Go on and see Renart with your children, you will not regret it!
