When gangly Crusoe washes up on an isolated island paradise, his appearance causes quite a stir amongst the inhabitants – a motley crew of beasts led by bored parrot Tuesday. Never having seen a human before they are amazed by him, and by the promise of a world beyond their own that he brings – especially for Tuesday, who is desperate to explore beyond the limited borders of the island. Despite not having a shared language, the curious critters and Crusoe learn to communicate as he relies on them to survive, and he in turn helps them when the island is threatened by a gang of unruly savage cats.
A resource to support fun and thought provoking activity to complement an Into Film Festival screening in the Culture Shock strand.
As with all the films of Aardman Studios, there’s no shortage of excitement, humour and daftness in this swashbuckling pirate adventure-animation.
