“Funny and elegant and disturbing.” – Dan Kois, Slate

This cinematic tale opens on a surreal note: with a traffic jam caused by a wounded elephant. Our heroine, Carice, abandons her car and walks trance-like through a wood to visit her husband in hospital. Along the way, she is confronted by a number of bizarre characters: a blind pig keeper, an alien-looking baby, a Swiss secret policeman...

The surreal encounters do not stop there. The hospital is eerie and foreboding. When Carice’s whistling wakes up an apparently dead body in the morgue, she soon realises that the aged cadaver she’s talking to is her future self.

Pachyderme is the perfect example of a vivid and poetic graphic novel that succeeds in conveying a sense of the unconscious, of true mystery.” – Moebius
