REVIEW FOR RAINING CATS AND FROGS - A FRENCH ANIMATION FILM
Sophisticated 3D and plasticine animation gives way to good-old, nostalgic picture-book animation in the first totally French produced animated feature since Le Roi et L’oiseau (The King and Mr. Bird) (1980). , La Prophétie des Grenouilles (Raining Cats and Frogs) is directed by Jacques Rémy Girerd. It has won the Glass Bear, Adult's Jury and Grand Prize awards for 2004.
This delightful summertime story is bound to enthrall your young ones at its showing at Prasad's multiplex today. Raining Cats And Frogs is about Tom and his parents who are spending their summer holidays with Lili, a girl his age. Lili's parents run a little zoo along the country roads of sourthern France.
Lili’s parents have gone off to Africa in search of crocodiles. The sweltering heat seems not to be going anywhere when a group of frogs suddenly bring the children some disturbing information. A huge flood is going to hit the region soon and air-breathers aren't expected to survive. The only answer is a Noah's ark but with carnivores packed in the same boat with plump pigs, the 40 days and nights are going to be quite a duel too. The film features Romain Bouteille, Michel Galabru, Annie Girardot, Michel Piccoli as voices.
