“We must not show a prompt. Cinema today is for the most part only shows and is a paranoid-dictatorship cinema. And we need a movie schizophrenic “- René Laloux

“Wild Planet» ( «La Planete Sauvage») (1973)
Will we see more ever full-length animated movie with so amazing, unusual and inventive plot as “Wild Planet” French classics René Laloux?

Animator and director of animated films René Laloux studied painting and worked in advertising, and later – in a psychiatric hospital, where he was the puppet animation with patients.

He created an epic animated film for adults in warm colors and psychedelic visuals, deservedly awarded the special prize of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival in 1973.

Lalu, working with illustrator Roland Axe, who led the team of animators Czechoslovakia in Prague, created a special cosmology, fantastic images reminiscent of Hieronymus Bosch. The ax, like a medieval master, painted landscapes full of dangers and prospects.

Throughout the 1960s, consistently produced this kind of hippie parables and nonconformist cartoons. But only “Fantastic Planet” to this day retains an invigorating effect and makes a strong impression on the viewer.

“” Fantastic Planet “was a sci-fi catalyst that affected the Stanislaw Lem, Tarkovsky films on comics magazine Heavy Metal … Not every intricately spun cautionary tale can survive the decline of its historical villains, and not every midnight movie can withstand repeated viewing in a sober light of day. ”

– Gary Dauphin, Village Voice

After a sentimental woman named Tiva ohms falls into the hands of a device comprising Drahov knowledge. Although they can not process information from a strange telepathic headset, but learn about upcoming extermination ohms. To control their numbers, dredge periodically arrange “cleansing the territory.”

Work on the film began in Prague, but because of political pressure continued in Paris. “Fantastic Planet”, perhaps the best, like Prometheus story, expressing the need for individuality.

Prog-rock with psychedelic jazz composer Alain Goragera complements the perception of alien landscape, but the greatest strength of the film in the fusion of design with outlandish characters character and bold ideas.
