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)

A bit aged digitally but universal funny story
10 January 2017 | by ImdbidiaSee all my reviews

I watched this animated film when it came out and found it very funny. This is a domestic story, wife-husband relationship, only grunts and noises, no language spoken. It could be an episode of any couple's relationship, situations that I found real, but presented in a troglodyte past. This short film will especially connect with emotionally available and adult men, who will recognize some of their struggle with women reflected in the story. However, this film is enjoyable per se because it is embedded with an universal pattern of behavior that is mocked in the film.

The animation is quite chunky and unrefined for modern standards regarding quality of the 3D image. However, it suits the troglodyte world it depicts.

This is an unpretentious funny film, and very enjoyable.
