Help, I'm a Fish!

Danish animator Stefan Fjeldmark draws on The Island of Dr. Moreau for this charming if silly feature. A girl, her older brother, and their cousin happen upon the lab of a mad but lovable scientist (the voice of Terry Jones), whose new serum allows humans to turn into fish and vice versa. Transported to the fish world, the three battle a conspiracy led by a power-mad fish (Alan Rickman) bent on taking over the world. To his credit, Fjeldmark honors the rules of his fantasy world, resolving the complicated plot in a way that should satisfy children and adults, and while the animation can't compete with Disney or Japanese anime, it outclasses most TV schlock. More impressive is how well Fjeldmark balances his love of outrageous physical humor against the need to tell a coherent story with moments of high drama. 65 min.
