Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

This wonderfully wacky animated film looks at two simultaneous conflicts, the macrocosm of global nuclear war and the microcosm of a domestic quarrel, and how each conflict is resolved. Presented with warmth and unexpectedly off-the-wall humour, the film is open to a multitude of interpretations. (Awards: Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, San Francisco, Annecy, Hiroshima, Cracow, Zagreb, Tampere)
