“Legend of the Forest” (1987) IMDb

Creators

Tezuka Osamu (writer-director).

Categorization

Two independent “environmentalist” revenge dramas.

Subject

A flying squirrel grows up to kill a hunter, and various sprites fail to negotiate with a lumber company.

Commentary

The experimental impressionist animation of the squirrel story is nice, but the whole idea of portraying nature as cute and ready for bloody vengeance is perverse.
