This web site is dedicated to The Mouse with a Mouth (in French: Le Mulot menteur - in Hungarian: A Hazudós egér) a 20-minute cut-outs animation film by the Hungarian director Andrea Kiss. The film is based on the story written by the Hungarian author Ervin Lázár.

The film is a co-production between Belgium (Ambiances… asbl), France (Les Médias associés - Studio Elsanime) and Hungary (Kecskemétfilm Ltd.), in association with Révélations hongroises (France) and Tout est possible asbl (Belgium).
Although the film received funding from public organisations in the three countries (cf. credits) in addition to funding from the Norwegian Composers Fund (Det Norske Komponistfond) for the composition and recording of the music, it is still a low-budget film.
Thankfully, we had a resourceful team with a great spirit of devotion which were necessary to cope with the lack of means during the shooting (20 minutes in stop motion is already something!)
We would like to thank all those who, with their help and support (advice, encouragements, lending of equipments and shooting places), enabled the creation of the film.

The film is distributed (in France, Belgium, Luxembourg…) by Les Films du préau and will be released in France in the movie theaters from the 9th of February of 2011. You will find on this web site practical information about the film (credits and résumés in several languages), news, opinions, comments, articles and links around The Mouse with the Mouth, some extracts (only one at the moment) and in the near future, an online shop.

Enjoy your visit!
