The Old Man Movie - poster


BOP Animation

Feature debut

Three children from the city join their grandfather in the country for the summer holidays. He begins by entrusting them with the most thankless tasks but the little brats set loose a potentially nuclear cow.

The Old Man Movie, an Estonian stop-motion animated feature, is a successful merger of what could resemble an Aardman production such as Shaun the Sheep and a Troma film. What looks like it would be a childish tale actually flirts constantly with bad taste and transgressions +and is often interspersed with explosions and dripping secretions.

This grotesque and wildly funny but above all very well written farce was an official selection at the 2020 Annecy International Animation Film Festival.
