Here are the first press reviews on SNOTTY BOY after its world premiere at the Annecy Festival.
Screen International: meticulously and wittily detailed and like Deix himself, confrontationally iconoclastic, fearlessly tackling religious and
social mores, and skewering hypocrisy and bigotry.
Fans of Deix – and there are many – will embrace this full-bodied animated appropriation of his spirit.
Wendy Ide, Screen International
Deadline: Inspired by his drawings and life, directors Santiago López Jover, Marcus H. Rosenmüller and their animators offer an affectionate,
playful homage to Deix, who worked as Art Director on the film before his death in 2016.
Anna Smith, Deadline
Cartoon Brew: Sometimes you don’t realize how much everything looks the same until you see something that looks truly different. That’s
the feeling I get from watching the trailer for Snotty Boy, a new co-production from Austria and Germany that will premiere
in competition next week at Annecy
Amid Amidi, Cartoon Brew
Animation World: An animated feature film that it moves away from any animated title
Le Point: Mention spéciale pour cet ovni germano-autrichien en images de synthèse, et pour sa scène d'ouverture hilarante qui restera,
à coup sûr, dans les annales du festival. (
) Les réalisateurs Marcus H. Rosenmüller et Santiago López Jover optent ici pour
une esthétique ultra-réaliste et un humour potache qui déplairont peut-être à certains. Nous, on a adoré !
