Town Called Panic: brilliant animation out of Belgium

Animated plastic toys. Peppered with brilliant slapstick. A storyline that makes the most wondrous stupid sense. Too excited to form proper sentences. Amazing animated film from Belgium. Hilarity that just builds and builds until your head explodes.

Deep breath. Okay, this film is weird, but it’s amazing weird. The animation techniques are as original and innovative as the narrative, which just leaves you staring at the screen going, ‘I have no idea how they came up with that, but I’m so glad they did’.

For me, this film ended with a very awkward television hug, and a sloppy kiss. It’s that good. So join Indian, Cowboy and Horse as they try to get their walls back from the sea people. You’ll regret it forever if you don’t.
