Fiddlesticks and The Teeny-Weeny Fox


Dir. Veit Helmer. 2014, 80 mins. Digital projection. In German with English subtitles. With Pieter Budak, Nora Börner, Benno Fürmann. Director Veit Helmer (Baiknor) brings us another wild, well-crafted feature with Fiddlesticks, an all-ages movie starring a group of rambunctious German children and their ingenious pet coati (raccoon). In this zany Little Rascals-inspired film, the Coati Gang lives in Bollersdorf, a village that prides itself in being the most average place in the world. When a greedy and manipulative consumer studies company tests new laboratory-created food products in their town, the kids spring into action. They plot to free their eccentric grandparents from a nursing home, and then set out to break a series of world records (including making the world’s largest milkshake in a swimming pool). Preceded by The Teeny-Weeny Fox (dirs. Aline Quertain, Sylwia Szkiladz. 2015, 8 mins. Digital projection) about a tiny fox who meets a little girl who grows giant plants. Recommended for ages 8+.
