A nerdy man goes on a blind date to a restaurant. The place is great and the girl is beautiful. If only the two sides of his brain (seen here as two tiny creatures running the brain's command center) could work together for once.
The green and sparkling spring has finally arrived in the thick and undisturbed forest, and all creatures, great and small, enjoy life. But somewhere on the other side of the woods, a recently awoken enormous and utterly adorable fluffy rabbit named Big Buck Bunny is heartlessly harassed by a flying squirrel's gang of rodents who simply find great pleasure in bullying innocent animals. Without a doubt, those mischievous pests are determined to squash Big Buck's happiness, furthermore, when two lustrous butterflies get in the gang's way with grave consequences, this will mean war. But who's gonna win?Written by
Wonderful! And no butterflies were actually harmed in the making of this film!
Wow. It's hard to believe that this short film was made by relative novices. Using open source files, they were able to create a film that is every bit as beautiful as the CGI projects by Pixar and Dreamworks--seriously. But, this is not just a gorgeous film but the story itself is wonderfully original and fun--making it film you just need to see.
The film begins with Buck Bunny awakening in his rabbit hole. Inexplicably, there are three adorable little critters that begin annoying Buck--throwing stuff at him and ripping the wings off butterflies simply because Buck likes butterflies! These guys are serious jerks and you just hope that Buck will kick their butts. When he does react, the cute but evil critters get much more than they anticipated! Overall, a wonderfully rendered and breathtaking Dutch film that can be enjoyed by anyone since it has no dialog. You gotta see this one!
When it comes Oscar time in a few months, I'll be very shocked if this film isn't among the nominees.
