A touching, wonderfully inventive animated fable with a sweeping musical score, The Painting is set within the borders of a canvas temporarily residing in the lush garden of an old chateau. Three castes of creatures live there: the rich, fully-painted Alldunns; the unfinished Halfies; and the rough-outlined Sketchies. The Alldunns shun the Halfies and persecute the Sketchies. But an Alldunn named Ramo starts to wonder if this is indeed the way things are meant to be — or if someday the others will be completed. Ramo sets off to see if he can somehow contact that mysterious Painter who started all the trouble in the first place. Full of visual wit and sly humor, The Painting is a sheer delight for young people of all ages. Note: This film contains brief animated nudity.
