DIRECTORS Jeremy Degruson, Ben Stassen
VOICES Cinda Adams, Joey Carmen, Christopher L. Parson, Bob Barlen
A fun animated adventure about a teenager who discovers his missing father is in fact Bigfoot, now hunted by a hair corporation seeking his special DNA.
Teenager Adam sets off on a daring adventure to find his missing father, only to discover that Dad is the legendary Bigfoot! Hiding deep in the forest for years to protect his family, Bigfoot is being hunted by nefarious mega-corp HairCo, which is eager to run experiments with his special DNA. This is a fun, family-oriented animated flick suitable for kids and pre-teens, with a lovely message about accepting who you are.
(2017 Belgium / France 92 mins)
It’s a fundamentally daft premise, but the film-makers have fun with it, sprinkling wry one-liners along the way to perk things up and threading the plot on a surprisingly strong emotional through-line. The character design is a little uneven, a bit too cutesy at times, especially with the animal friends, but the rendering of hair, water and wet-hair textures is especially impressive and tactile. Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
