Raining Cats and Frogs (2003) 6

France | 2003 | 87 min.

At the end of the world, far away from everything, is a cozy farm at the top of a hill where a family lives peacefully. The frogs at the foot of the hill are very worried. They have no doubts; all predictions agree that a giant flood is about to engulf the Earth. Faced with this raging element, the frogs agree that, just this once, they will communicate with the humans. And thus begins a great adventure in which animals and people have to learn to live together. This is easier said than done... Raining Cats and Frogs is the first feature film by the famous French animation film studio Folimage. In its original language, the animals are voiced by famous actors such as Michel Galabru and Annie Girardot.
