      @Holsapple Studios Akif Pirinçci the writer of the 'Felidae' novel on witch the movie is based is an anti-islamic racist. I don't think saber will promote that movie. I like the movie and the novel but the person behind is an idiot. Same problem like with Jon Schaffer, good musician but wrong in the head.

    What is missed here is that Christopher Nielsen's borther, Joachim "Jokke" Nielsen, was (and still is) a famous music artist in Norway, and even somewhat recently (2006) got a street named after him. It's not unthinkable that Christopher, watching from the sidelines, observed that those around Jokke were more concerned with his music career than his wellbeing. Jokke died in 2000 due to a heroin overdose. For those familiar with the background, there can be no doubt that the elephant Jimmy represents Christopher's dead brother, and while death is hardly a happy ending, the sad reality is that it could hardly have gone any other way. This also puts into perspective the rockslide, denying everyone any chance of using what remains for financial gain.

    Yay I'm glad you liked the movie! I remember watching it when I was younger and it was pretty dark for me. I'm also more used to the art style, since for some reason Norway comics are often dark and either satirical, at least older ones. I hope you were able to also listen for a bit to the Norwegian dub, since the hunters are Trøndere (from the region of Trøndelag), and a running gag was that the big one is called "Hold the glasses" because he always makes the others hold his glasses right before he does some shit. XD I dunno why I always thought that was funny. I wanna rewatch this movie with the English voices now. Not sure if there was a dub back when I saw it. Thanks for the video on it! And you look nice with whatever hair I see you with to be honest. Whenever you come on camera, you're always put together. Somehow! But you never look like your avatar so it always takes me a hot second. "Wait, why is Saber's voice coming out of this guy? He's not even wearing an orange shirt!"

    Finally decided to watch the english version. Yeah, it's not as good. Much of the original's humor comed from the diverse dialects. That became a hit or miss when localized into english. Worst of all is the scene with the american tourists. Without the language barrier(with the stonerss off course speaking norwegian), most of the humor disappears. Then there is the cultural jokes. How can find a sami/lap mafia on motorbikes funny, if you don't know who they are? For americans, try imagening a native american mafia, with sterio typical imagery like big featherhats and redface theme on theirself and bikes, while playing a rock version of some traditional native american song. Then you should get close to how hillaruis, and slightly racist, the mafia in this movie is.

    I chose a random video to comment this on, but could I recommend a movie called Mutafukaz? It's like an animated-ish mature movie (it contains a crap-top of swearing and if I remember correctly quite some gore) I watched it long ago (like a year or so ago), but from what I remember it was messed up, but actually kind of good? But if it turns out bad, don't blame me, I just remember enjoying it overall.

    When you get the purpose around this film, it actually makes you sympathize with the film even more. The explanation of why it's designed like this is honestly incredible....

  58. Richard Pace

    Richard Pace


    I would argue that the "unpolished" nature was entirely intentional, and was evident through the design decisions of the creator's original work, and the shot selection and editing in even the short clips you shared showed alot. But while "unpolished" artistic live action is praised by many critics, when it comes to animation they may as well just be blind to it. Of course, its about 100x harder to do with animation as well. And people love the kitsch shit that comes out of Pixar, and continue the "animation is for children" problem the whole industry has had since CCA came in and forced it into there with moral authority (also including pretty much all of the visual arts - its either overly pretentious or for children).

    is the carpet comfortable?


    Free Jimmy is heavily based on everything that went on with Joachim Nielsen (Vocalist from Jokke med Tourettes, Jokke & Valentinerne) who is a Norwegian rock legend. He was a drug addict and was heavily exploited by the music industry. The elephant represents Joachim Nielsen himself, the animal activists are his fans who enabled him, the circus people are the music industry who fed his addiction. There are some more character details that I cannot remember. Joachim was one of the first people with some influence in Norway who openly spoke about how brutal drug addiction actually is. The bag of heroin the elephant has sewn in his thigh that ends up being torn open by the bullet is, unfortunately, representing how Joachim himself died. Of a heroin overdose. A lot of his music can at first be brushed of as something you put on in the background while you have a couple of drinks with your friends, because it sounds cheery and upbeat. But the lyrics are downright depressing (except for a few songs who do sound genuinely sad.) He was truly a gem, and had a lot to say about how shitty drugs are and how awful ones mental health can become. The man was a genius, at least in my eyes.

    The rest of the villains are pretty much most of the humans in this movie I’m not even kidding, So many of the human characters in C-level are giant assholes with no love or humanity inside them at all, it paints mankind as unsympathetic money-Grubbing monsters who take pleasure in animal cruelty, Now trust me I get what this movie is trying to say it’s saying ‘’hey! Humans shouldn’t exploit or hurt sea life it’s bad it’s wrong!’’ But it’s getting it’s message across the wrong way it’s too on-the-nods and pretty offensive considering that all of the audience members are humans If you want to say are abusing animals is wrong then fine but be considerate towards your audience don’t bring your finger at them they don’t come to the cinema to feel guilty give them a human character to identify with one who can influence them to take action films message should inspire audiences not guilt trip them.

  93. Ellie Gray

    Ellie Gray


    This is maybe a wild guess, but I bet part of the reason for the ugly human characters is "knowing your limits". This is too much of a downer story for cute cartoonish characters, but going for "realistic" designs probably would have been disastrous, so a stylized ugliness to match their personalities or natures makes sense and is a smart move very few would make.

The animation made me think of Hoodwinked, which is one of my favorite movies.. but it does not equate to this necessarily as I think that was owing to a poor budget ( if i remember correctly).
