    Synopsis:
    A freewheeling road movie set entirely inside a flat, Bunny & the Bull stars Ed Hogg (White Lightnin') as obsessive-compulsive Stephen Turnbull, so afraid of the unexpected and the outside world he has turned his flat into a virtual mausoleum, eating, TV-watching and even urinating to a timetable. When a sudden infestation of mice forces him to the brink of his front door, his painfully catalogued and stored mementoes of the past hurtle him into a mental odyssey, back to the ill-fated European trip he took with his booze-soaked lothario of a best friend, Bunny (Simon Farnaby) the summer before. After taking in such delights as the German Museum of cutlery, Bunny decides his love-sick friend needs more 'stimulating' adventures, and soon they're picking up fiery Spanish waitress Eloisa - with whom Stephen falls hopelessly in love - and meeting alcoholic matadors and mad Hungarian tramps (Boosh regulars Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding). As the trio head towards Eloisa's Spanish hometown friendships are tested, love is found and lost, and stuffed bears are stolen.

    A clever, funny and dark buddy movie, Bunny & the Bull touches on male friendship, impotent bravado and grief. Played out against part animated and endlessly inventive handcrafted backdrops, director Paul King echoes Gondry, Gilliam and Burton for visual eccentricity. Winner of Best Achievement in Production Award at the 2009 British Independent Film Awards.
