Storyline

A girl sees a rabbit running across a field. Thinking it would make an excellent muff, she pursues it with a knife. It escapes her, but her brother kills it. She slices it open, and out pops an animated idol that, when bothered by insects, turns them into feathers, bottles of ink, and jewels. Thinking of the riches of royalty, the boy and girl put the idol outside in a vat of plum jam and proceed to eviscerate various farm animals to draw hundreds of wasps and flies. The idol complies, and soon they've filled a bedroom with boxes of jewels. Off they go to town to trade the feathers and ink for more jam, but while they're gone, the idol is busy. Comeuppance may await. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

classic timeless animation
11 March 2006 | by imdb-12957See all my reviews

Insane and highly imaginative remake of 1960's children's illustrations. This is a great example of the current standard in graphic animation where bold techniques translate into fantastic visual artworks.

Two children discover a godlike idol in a rabbit after slaughtering it for its fur. This opens a world carnage and computer game style obsession where the children's desire to control the golden idol takes them over.

Previous Run Wrake animations have been even more off the wall revealing the unusual talents of this madcap genius.

Rabbit is a far more rounded work where the narrative is almost too defined leaving the ending a bit too moralistic.
