A COPRODUCTION THE ANIMATION BAND - RAI CINEMA
PROJECT FOR FEATURE FILM 80'
AUTHOR: BRUNO BOZZETTO
In a fantasy world, similar to the Earth of millions of years ago, amidst brutal and stupid monkey-like inhabitants, lives a likeable and frenetic young boy, who possesses some elementary intelligence, and a lively young girl, who introduces him to the existence of feelings.
They are accompanied by the enourmous Mammuk, a living symbol of poetry and goodness - a pity that he's also the most wanted prey for every hunter!
After more of 25 years since the "prehistoric" episode of "Allegro non troppo", Bruno Bozzetto revisits with his disenchanted but ironic eye the remote past, narrating an eventful story filled of adventures and hilarious characters - and some reflections - on the origins of Man.
