A French/Czech co-production, the dream-like La Planete Sauvage concerns the degradation of the Oms, human-like creatures on the futuristic planet Yagam. The Oms are kept as pets and beasts of burden by the Draggs, 39-foot beings who comprise Yagam's ruling class. The status quo is upset when Terr, one of the Oms, accidentally receives an education, whereupon he organizes the other Oms to demand equality with the Draggs. Based on Stefen Wul's novel Ems En Serie, Fantastic Planet was the winner of a 1973 Cannes Film Festival grand prize.

If you are into sci-fi and have an open mind, this is the flick for you no matter what your age.

Imagine Spartacus, combined with Star Trek & Karl Marx as a psychodelic cartoon. Only the early 1970's could have produced this fantasticly funky French sci-fi animated epic. On a distant planet, an oppressed race of tiny humans revolts against its giant masters.
