Wladyslaw Starewicz is an incredible animator. It's taken him 10 years to create this piece only being aided by his daughter, while based in the French countryside near Paris. Originally from Poland, Starewicz's knowledge is originally based in entomology. He was a researcher in Russia, given the task of recording the mating patterns of beetles. However, with the heat of the camera lights found it impossible to record. It was at this point he turned to stop-frame animation, wiring the bodies of beetles to recreate the motions of beetle mating. However, it wasn't long before he began his 'Cameraman's Revenge' series using other insects to reenact humanistic scenarios. Tale of the Fox was his last piece and is truely amazing. I adore it. Way ahead of his time.

Stop motion. The extensive use of fur suggested, to me, that they have used the remains of real animals. Very early full length animated film, probably only of interested to the enthusiast. I doubt that children would be entertained.

This film is extraordinary. Just wish that Jiri Trnka's Midsummer Night's Dream (with naration by Richard Burton was available on DVD too... then I be very happy!!!
