Brilliant art. Brilliant story. Brilliant film. Bill Plympton, Oscar nominated and world renowned animator.An Australian animated film based the novel by John Gardiner, Grendel Grendel Grendelfeatures the voice talents of Sir Peter Ustinov (Spartacus), Keith Michell (Captain James Cook), Arthur Dignam (The Devil's Playground) and Julie McKenna. Designed and animated by Alexander Stitt (award-winning creator of the iconic Life Be In It and Slip, Slop, Slap animations) and produced by Phillip Adams in 1981, this cult tale is a part re-telling of the epic poem Beowulf, told from the perspective of the great monster Grendel.Revisionist in part, it presents the other side of the story, the tale of a contemplative monster desperate to find meaning in life. Encountering a fearsome dragon, Grendel must face the possibility that his sole purpose in life is to terrify humanity and leave behind a legacy of destruction and evil.
