Voice castEdit


It is one of the first stop-motion feature films to not target the family audience, and is being distributed in Canada by TVA Film. Technical director Jean-Luc Dinsdale used Automatic Duck to arrange the film.[1]


The film's world premier was on September 4, 2008, as the Opening Film of the Canada First section at the Toronto International Film Festival. Toronto International Film Festival Programmer Jesse Wente said about it: "The animation is so gorgeous it almost made me vomit - in a good way - when you see the scene you’ll know what I mean" .[2]
