Bunny and the Bull (2009)

Directed by
Paul King

Everyone's had holidays they would rather forget, but few will have left a mark as profound as Stephen's appalling European trip. The journey so traumatised him that, in the 12 months since returning, he's not once found the strength to leave the safety of his flat. Mighty Boosh director Paul King's comedy, made for £750,000 in just six weeks, has been widely lauded for its bravura invention, employing a panoply of devices - from animation and collage to hand-crafted backdrops - and wild leaps of the imagination. From the haven of his King's Cross home, Stephen recalls how the jaunt with his rakish, domineering friend Bunny morphed into the stuff of nightmares, climaxing in a terrifying encounter with the bull of the title. Among the bizarre characters they bump into along the way are a Hungarian tramp a suave bullfighter, and Stephen's love interest, Spanish waitress Eloisa. The director has since achieved major mainstream success with Paddington and Paddington 2.
