Manivald, a fox, is turning 33. Overeducated, unemployed and generally uninspired, he lives with his overbearing, retired mother and spends his days learning piano while she makes his coffee and washes his socks. It is an easy life, but not a good one. Their unhealthy co-dependence is about to collapse when the washing machine breaks down and Toomas, a sexy and adventurous wolf repairman, arrives to fix it, and them.

    I found Chintin's work on youtube (thanks TED x animated videos) and I fell in love with this quirky style, so I decided to do some research into what else this person has animated and I ran into Manivald. I have to say that I'm sad it's not out yet but I'm excited to see it when it comes out. I am very much hoping that this isn't an abandoned project!
