On a distant planet, tiny humanoid creatures called Oms live in fear of the Draags. Draags are blue-skinned, red-eyed creatures standing over 40 feet tall. When a Draag child casually kills a human mother with a flick of her finger, she makes amends by adopting the dead woman's child as a pet. However, the new pet quickly figures out the secret of Draag brainpower and escapes to share his knowledge with a band of humans. Together, the humans make plans to bring down the reign of the Draags.

Summary

Summary

A French/Czech co-production, the dream-like La Planete Sauvage concerns the degradation of the Oms, human-like creatures on the futuristic planet Yagam. The Oms are kept as pets and beasts of burden by the Draggs, 39-foot beings who comprise Yagam's ruling class. The status quo is upset when Terr, one of the Oms, accidentally receives an education, whereupon he organizes the other Oms to demand equality with the Draggs. Based on Stefen Wul's novel Ems En Serie, Fantastic Planet was the winner of a 1973 Cannes Film Festival grand prize. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
