Worth a Watch: Les Escargots

Published: Wed Apr 02 2014

Les Escargots is a cracking short film that made by a pair of French mad-heads called Roland Topor and René Laloux in the sixties. Without ruining the story too much, it tells the tale of a farmer who uses his tears to help his plants grow, accidentally enticing a group of massive snails to come along and wreck everything. There’s probably some sort of moral here, but I’m yet to work out what it might be. Definitely worth watching though.
