The monkeys and the secret weapon

Jannik Hastrup, Denmark, 1995

73 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films, Animation

Displaying a very personal sense of the humor of the baroque, pretty far from run-of-the-mill animation cuteness, Jannik Hastrup has a strong pulse of jazzy rhythms running through his fourth animation feature, a Romeo and Juliet tale of two fighting monkey clans, who don't really know what all the feudin' is about. the spice of social satire is, in secret weapon-style, sprinkled throughout.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
