''Fantastic Planet'' (French title: ''La Planète Sauvage'') is a 1973 Czech/French film about... [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible various things]], and it's far too trippy and eccentric to do justice here. Basically, set on the homeworld of the Traags (or Draags), where humans--known as Oms--exist as both a population of troublesome vermin and also as pets. The film follows one of these pets from his captivity to later living among wild humans. Later still, things get [[TrippyFinaleSyndrome even stranger]], if that's possible. Let's just say that it involves a ritualised engagement in intergalactic out-of-body experiences, symbolically and probably literally a reference to both drugs and sex, which is threatened by an act of terrorism. All of which still doesn't make it sound half as surreal as the film itself.

Along the way, other stuff happens that you never really understand. It's almost indescribable, but just think ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs on mescaline]], and you pretty much have it.
