BUNNY & THE BULL is a road movie set entirely in a flat. Stephen Turnbull (Edward Hogg) hasn't been outside in months. Living with a painfully restrictive routine, he refuses to interact with the world or think about the past.
Everything changes when a sudden infestation of mice forces him to change his ways. He finds his mind switches back to the disastrous trek around Europe he undertook with his friend Bunny (Simon Farnaby), a womanising, gambling-addicted booze-hound.
Unable to stem the flood of memories, Stephen's flat becomes the springboard for an extraordinary odyssey through landscapes made up of snapshots and souvenirs, from the industrial wastelands of Silesia to the bull fields of Andalusia. A story of love, disillusionment, stuffed bears and globalised seafood, Bunny & the Bull is an offbeat and heartfelt journey to the end of the room.
Bunny & the Bull is not your typical low-budget independent British feature film. The fifth production from low-budget studio Warp X and the first feature from the director of the cult BBC comedy show THE MIGHTY BOOSH, it's an odd-couple road movie that plays out entirely within one man's head - and by the same token, the film criss-crosses Europe while remaining conspicuously and imaginatively shot in a studio.
Warp X's other projects are: comic documentary A COMPLETE HISTORY OF MY SEXUAL FAILURES directed by Chris Waitt, hedonism-gone-wrong thriller DONKEY PUNCH directed by Olly Blackburn, HUSH and ATP.
