In the distant future, human beings are oppressed on the planet Ygam. These beings, called Oms, are kept as pets by the giant blue Draags. The film follows Terr, a young Om who lives in captivity with a Draag. When he discovers an underground movement of wild Oms resisting the Draags' oppression, he joins them and becomes their leader in the fight for freedom and equality.
Nothing else has ever looked or felt like Le Planète Sauvage. The combination of surreal images (with Roland Topor's signature cut-out animations) and Alain Goraguer's psychedelic soundtrack makes it a rollercoaster ride of a movie. A film that is best experienced on the big screen.
La Planète Sauvage won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival in 1973.
