618. Big Bang – Bruno Bozzetto

hqdefault

SUMMARY: A gardener and her slovenly husband have their quiet lives disrupted by the effects of pollution.

WHY IT’S HERE: Bruno Bozzetto’s ‘Big Bang’ is an amusing minor work by the great director, which returns to the environmental issues he addressed in ‘Mr. Rossi in Venice’ but on a global scale this time. The image of the Earth as a giant landfill is unforgettable and the simple but effective message and final piece of basic wordplay make ‘Big Bang’ a suitable tool for teaching children about the effects of pollution.
