Kenneth Kainz, Erik Schmidt | Denmark | 2013 | 76 min. | O.V. English subtitled in Spanish
Following the very successful run of Danish 3D animation in recent years (Freddie Frogface, Jelly T) we now have Otto is a Rhino. Topper is a ten year boy with a vivid imagination. His classmates think he’s a liar because of the stories he tells them about his father, a sailor who lives far from home, sailing the seven seas. One day, Topper finds a strange pencil with which he draws a rhino on his sitting room wall. He has no idea of the trouble he’s getting into, and not exactly because he’s messed up the wall: the rhino (called Otto) comes alive and Topper, along with his friend Viggo and Cilla, his secret love, has to cope with him. A thousand hilarious situations arise as a result of the “birth” of Otto, who is very likable but also permanently hungry and extremely noticeable.
