Bunny and the Bull – which features guest appearances from Boosh duo Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding – is the latest release from Sheffield-based digital film studio Warp X. Screen Yorkshire invested in the film through its Production Fund (2003- 2010).
Stephen Turnbull (Edward Hogg) hasn’t left the house in months. He has an extremely precise daily routine, and his system works well: he has no need to interact with the world or think about anything in particular. But one day an infestation of mice wreaks havoc on his schedule, unleashing a chaos that rattles his mental cage and sends him hurtling through the past. This means reliving the disastrous European trek upon which he had embarked the previous year with his best friend Bunny (Simon Farnaby).
“The flourishes of artistic invention compliment a wonderful, sensitive and perfectly-paced script. From the opening credits to the poignant conclusion the film is utterly captivating. Bunny and the Bull is a comic delight – and one of the films of the year.” *****
