Hundreds of Beavers

Steroidally swollen with gags and smarts, positively bucktoothed with goofiness, and gorgeous with world-building invention.


Hundreds of Beavers

A slapstick epic about a frostbitten battle between JEAN KAYAK and DIABOLICAL BEAVERS -- hundreds of them -- who stand between him and survival. In this 19th century, supernatural winter epic, a drunken applejack salesman must go from zero to hero and become the greatest fur trapper by defeating hundreds of beavers.

"A marvel of slapstick invention that in terms of pure unbridled creativity puts most big-screen comedies to shame." ~ Nick Schager, The Daily Beast

Hundreds of Beavers is fueled by a delirious spirit that reminded me sometimes of “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World,” and that’s a high compliment indeed." ~ Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News

"Part Guy Maddin, part Chuck Jones -- a constant delight." ~ Alonso Duralde, Breakfast All Day

"On paper, it would hardly be expected to remain funny for eight minutes, let alone 108. But this ingeniously homemade lark never runs out of steam." ~ Dennis Harvey, Variety

Hundreds of Beavers starts strange, gets stranger, and yet remains resolutely adorable." ~ Alexandra Heller-Nicholas,
