Hungarian animated feature film for children, 1981, directed by Attila Dargay, Digital remastering supervised by Irén Henrik D.O.P.. Bonus features: animated children’s short film; documentary clip about the making of the film.
The moving story of Vuk, the little orphan fox, has remained the most beloved feature-length Hungarian cartoon ever. Having captured the public as a TV series, the film version welcomed a total of over 2 million viewers. The director Attila Dargay did not turn away from Walt Disney’s traditions, which he held in high esteem: both István Fekete’s touching story and Dargay’s cheerful characters appealed to children’s minds.
