A Swedish animated movie featuring the voices of Juliette Lewis and Vincent Galo

Metropia, directed by Tarik Saleh, is a feature-length animated movie from Sweden. The film was co-produced by Atmo Metro (Sweden), Zentropa Entertainment (Denmark), and Tordenfilm As (Norway) and has received 400,000 Euros from Eurimages (European cinema fun). Despite the relatively small budget of $3 million, the images I have seen to date, along with the two videos shown in this post, are very promising.

The film appears to be a great blend of stop motion, 2D animation and possibly 3D. Juliette Lewis and Vincent Gallo have already been confirmed for voices. The movie is expected to be released in the fall of 2009. I will keep you posted with up-to-the-minute updates!

UPDATE: More info on IMDB

What do you think of this style of animation? I’d love to have your input…
