• Manivald

    11,184 views 1 month ago
    Manivald, a fox, is turning 33. Overeducated, unemployed and generally uninspired, he lives with his overbearing, retired mother and spends his days learning piano while she makes his coffee and washes his socks. It is an easy life, but not a good one. Their unhealthy co-dependence is about to collapse when the washing machine breaks down and Toomas, a sexy and adventurous wolf repairman, arrives to fix it, and them.

    Directed by Chintis Lundgren - 2017 | 13 min
    Co-produced by CHINTIS LUNDGREN ANIMATSIOONISTUUDIO, ADRIATIC ANIMATION and the National Film Board of Canada
