(La Plančte sauvage)
Fantastic Planet tells the story of "Oms", human-like creatures kept as domesticated pets by an alien race of blue giants called "Traags". Widely regarded as an allegorical statement on the Soviet occupation of Czechoslovakia, Fantastic Planet was five years in the making at Prague's Jiri Trnka Studios. The incredible art of Roland Topor and Alain Gorauger's brilliantly complementary score (much sampled by the hip-hop community) all combine to make Fantastic Planet a mind-searing experience. Rene Laloux's mesmerising psychedelic sci-fi animated feature won the Grand Prix at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival and is a landmark of European animation.
