A devoted and happily-married housewife organises a surprise party on the occasion of her husband's birthday, unbeknownst to her that her dentist spouse is experiencing a sudden mid-life crisis at his office.
In the spirit of 50's & 60's educational films, 'Let's Pollute' is a modern satire on how pollution is our heritage and keeps our economy growing strong, while instructing us how to be better polluters for a better blighted tomorrow.
Famadihana is an ancient Malagasy custom that means "the turning of the dead". A symbol of the importance of the worship of ancestors, and a chance to move the remains of ancestors from their first tomb to their final resting place, it is an occasion for festivities, dance and the sacrifice of zebus. The movie is filmed like the travel journey of a Western traveler in search of these customs. The pages turn, the drawings come to life, and the luxuriant landscapes of Madagascar appear one after another. The celebrations may commence.Written by
The French school of animation is all about making money. Multiple state agencies have poured help into this piece of junk. And also typical of the French school of animation, there is no story, only a reinforcement of the old colonial thinking: the curious white man, the happy savages with their strange, yet so very humane reactions, all saying 'see? they're also human!' What is the point of this? The trip? But we are thrown into action from the first minute. Walking the dead ritual? But there is more. So much more for a short feature. The animation is an aberrant mix of animation techniques. Can they do all those? Wonderful. That should be their portfolio to get a job. It can be colorful or monochrome, but in a random way. Yet, the locals are speaking stereotype bad French.
