The provocative work of multi-award-winning animator Phil Mulloy stands as a model of satiric grotesque unparalleled in British animation.
The life, loves and tribulations of a typical English family.
Why did Mr. Christie sever his penis?
Did Terry really kill his child?
Will Mrs. Christie have sex with Mr. Hitler?
Phil Mulloy answers these questions and many more in The Christies, an eleven-part film that won the Ottawa Festival Grand Prize for "its uncompromising innovative approach, anarchist dialogue and humour, which make it an animated feature film unlike anything we've seen before."
Author of the Intolerance trilogy and many short films, some of which have been reunited in Mondo Mulloy, Phil Mulloy, the enfant terrible of animation, returns with a black comedy which describes the daily life of a family of psychopaths. He attacks like no other, with wit and insight, hypocrisy and the pitiful and derisory aspects of life.
