Follow a day of the life of Big Buck Bunny when he meets three bullying rodents: Frank, Rinky, and Gamera. The rodents amuse themselves by harassing helpless creatures by throwing fruits, nuts and rocks at them. 

One could think BIG BUCK BUNNY is just an animation for kids, funny and colorful. And yes, BIG BUCK BUNNY is funny indeed, but also a little bit darker than it seems. Our main character just wants to live his peaceful life in nature, with his butterflies friends, when the situation is shaken by three rodents. Those pests surely are annoying and mean: they throw seeds, nuts, rocks, fruits to other animals. Not only they attack Big Buck Bunny, but they also mercilessly kill the butterflies. BIG BUCK BUNNY is a funny revenge story, our rabbit decides to face the bullies and achieves vengeance. The situations are funny and nice to see, one feels a sense of fairness when he manages to get rid of those rodents. BIG BUCK BUNNY has nice animation, setting, colors, character models, black humor, and surely is enjoyable.

BIG BUCK BUNNY won the Audience Award at FIKE – Évora International Short Film Festival.
