Editorial Reviews

From the director of A Might Boosh, comes BUNNY AND THE BULL, a road movie set entirely in an apartment. Reclusive Stephen Turnbull (Edward Hogg, Alfie) hasn t been outside in months and refuses to interact with the world. When a sudden infestation of mice forces him to change his ways, his mind hurtles back to the disastrous trek around Europe he undertook with his friend Bunny (Simon Farnaby, Fat Slags), a womanizing, gambling-addicted booze-hound. Stephen is unable to stem the flood of memories, and his flat becomes the springboard for an extraordinary odyssey through landscapes made up of snapshots and souvenirs, from the industrial wastelands of Poland to the bullrings of Spain. A story of love, disillusionment and stuffed bears, BUNNY AND THE BULL is an offbeat and heartfelt journey to the end of the room.

Paul King's inventive and subversively delightful debut "Bunny and the Bull" is a film that took me completely by surprise! This visually inventive treat combines raucous humor, oddball situations, and surprising heart into the story of a shut-in unable to cope with an outside existence. Within the chaos of his apartment, he channels memories and fantasies through his collected objects and goes on a mental road trip that explains how he reached this loner state. If you're looking for an entertainment that's off the beaten track and deftly combines elements of surrealism with over-the-top rudeness, you can do far worse than this film. With thoroughly modern British sensibilities, "Bunny and the Bull" somehow balances childlike wonder with the worst in adult bad behavior. I frequently laughed out loud, never knowing exactly where this mental excursion was going to transport me.

Edward Hogg plays the straight man for much of the tale. Hogg has developed a lifestyle that never requires him to venture outdoors. His apartment is a comic goldmine of visual delights, but the story really opens up as he retraces his past. Simon Farnaby, as his best friend Bunny, presides over much of this misadventure. A real cretin, but not without his charm, he seems to exist to plague Hogg--but it is in these bad acts that Hogg really begins to embrace life. The madcap antics on the road are unrelenting and mostly hysterical. There are women and love stories involved, of course, but more than anything--"Bunny and the Bull" is an examination of friendship. The two leads play off one another with precision. The oddball pairing actually makes sense and there is an underlying sweetness to the story that becomes more evident and highlights a bittersweet revelation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Childlike Masterpiece. November 2, 2010
By C. Park
Format:Blu-ray
You cannot possibly begin to grasp this film by simply reading a review, though I will try- this film, while being criminally unavailable in the states, is one of the best films of its type.

But what type is that exactly? It isn't a comedy, although it is hilarious. It isn't a drama, though it is tragic in parts. It isn't for children, although it uses an almost children's adventure archetype. It is all and none of these things.
First off, it appears that all of this was shot on a soundstage. Backgrounds are often animated, miniatures, or a combination thereof. Its as if Pee Wee Herman were taking acid with the Brothers Quay and invited The Mighty Boosh to the party.
There are actually Americans who do not know of the Mighty Boosh. The comedy duo of Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt (both of whom appear in this film) is, while not essential viewing for understanding the story, very much a part of the world that this film inhabits, even to the point of having several of the same actors apart from those mentioned. The same surreal, quirky, goofy innocence is all over this film.It can almost be compared to "Alice in Wonderland"....but for adults.
Really, words fail me. Instantly arresting and completely captivating it has become essential in my library. It is the sort of film you will want to put on like the radio. It is genuinely sad, genuinely romantic, genuinely hilarious, and genuinely bizarre. Do whatever you can to see this- at least once.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great movie May 29, 2013
By dib
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Unique! A great look! Very stylized and stylish. Very quirky and offbeat.
If you know the guys behind it, you are more prepared for what to expect (but it’s something really new).
It’s a zany character piece. A surreal setting. Beautifully envisioned and executed. It’s a really good movie.
