A wealthy man falls madly in love with a sheep in Argentine novelist-playwright Sergio Bizzio's directing bow 'Animal,' a surreal black comedy with overtones of Bunuel. Intermittently funny and macabre while taking a good poke at the useless upper classes, the prize-winning screenplay loses some of its irony through pedestrian screen work and acting. Pic is most noteworthy for a handful of startling, barely offscreen scenes of bestiality, which come off deadly serious. Lacking the transgressive sensuality of a filmmaker like Walerian Borowczyk, or the comforting explanation that the hero is a loony, these scenes are hard to mesh with the film's generally farcical tone and could be a little disturbing to the hip arthouse viewers to whom pic is addressed. Subject matter should nonetheless stir up some interest on various offshore video shelves.By DEBORAH YOUNG -VARIETY
