It is not the first time that a version of the novel The Living Forest by Wenceslao Fernández Flórez is made into a film.
On this occasion we recommend family cinema with the computer animation that won two Goya awards. It was also pre-selected for an Oscar nomination for Best Animation feature. This was the first Spanish film to be pre-selected for an Oscar.
Synopsis: Everyday, idle Mr. D'Abondo and his faithful servant walk across the forest Fraga Cecebre and always remarks on how the forest seems to become alive. One day, some men plant a new tenant, a stuck-up telephone post. This is the start of troubles and Furi, a small friendly mole secretly in love with Linda, is an expert in troubles. One day, Furi goes missing with the forest mole colony. The forest inhabitants will join forces to solve the forest troubles and bring back harmony and happiness.
