  3. Fact Sheet

The film by the Guillaume brothers is guaranteed to create a buzz!

Bzz & Co, the fly swatter factory in Saint-Hilare, is on the brink of bankruptcy as there are not enough flies left in the region. To boost business, a mad scientist creates a strain of mutant insects that soon attack the inhabitants of the town. But they hadn't reckoned on the arrival of Max and his friend Félicie...

In a world subjected to the dictates of profit and profitability, Max & Co is a real social fable that comically tackles current issues concerning redundancy, fierce capitalism and the domination of man by the company. This stop-motion film is an aesthetic accomplishment that will delight young and old!
