Synopsis by Tom Vick
Based on a popular comic book series by Alice Mak and Brian Tse, the animated film My Life as McDull depicts events in the life of the title character, a piglet living in an animated Hong Kong teeming with both humans and animals. Narrated by the adult McDull (Jan Lamb), the plot takes some side trips into his school days, an imaginary vacation to the Maldives, and his mother's decidedly odd cooking show, before focusing on McDull's dream of becoming an Olympic athlete in the unconventional sport of "bun snatching." Director Toe Yuen tells this whimsical children's tale using a mixture of advanced animation techniques. My Life as McDull won the FIPRESCI prize at the 2002 Hong Kong International Film Festival.
