Animation

Old Fangs

A young wolf decides to confront his father, whom he has not seen since he was a child.

Old Fangs may look like the kind of animation you expect to see associated with a Roald Dahl story, but this is a tale darker than any tale the master of twisted childrens stories could tell. The characters may look cute (all apart from Old Mr Wolf), but this is a story of a family struggling to come to grips with their differences and their past. The style of the film often flips from scene to scene, with different scenarios calling for different approaches and different flourishes. It’s an artistic decision that pays dividends, adding multitudes to the films originality and individual voice.

Old Fangs also has the best poster I’ve seen in a long, long time.
