    Brief synopsis

    Die nordische Mythologie, auf der der Film basiert, war für unseren Film eine reiche, und kulturell-relevante Inspirationsquelle. Unsere Geschichte um das Eichhörnchen-ähnliche Wesen Ratatoskr, seinen Freund Eikpyrnir und den Weltenbaum Yggdrasil, bietet alles, was einen guten Film ausmacht: von unterhaltsamen Charakteren, abwechslungsreichen Welten über inspirierende Kunst, mystische Muster und Farben bis hin zu historisch und ökonomisch relevanten Konflikten. Ratatoskr erzählt eine Geschichte über die Gier.

    ===========

    Once upon a time in the world tree of Yggdrasil the greedy, little squirrel-like creature Ratatoskr steals the Fruit of Life, which is protected by the lower guard, an ice dragon, and the upper guard, a golden bird. By playing the two guards off against each other, Ratatoskr causes a disastrous development for all living beings of Yggdrasil.
