The Last of the Dodos

Poslední blboun

Indian Ocean, summer 1662. A trading ship is wrecked in a storm near the shores of Mauricius. The only surviving sailor undergoes extremely unpleasant adventures with a roasted dodo, with the idiosyncratic inhabitants of the local mission and in the end he realises the true meaning of the saying “We are what we eat.” An animated adventure film by Jiří Novák about the wretched destiny of one castaway, about sweet dodos, greedy monks and God’s punishment for man’s greediness.
