Rene Laloux-Fantastic Planet

An incredible film by french animator/director René Laloux, known in the english speaking world as Fantastic Planet, the french title is La Planète sauvage, or Savage Planet. Laloux enjoyed success with this film in 1973 and it ended up winning the special jury prize at Cannes. As far as I am concerned Laloux is one of the absolute masters of animation and out of all his work Fantastic Planet is his best.
