"It's a full-scale delivery of animation with its own cultural imperative. This gives the movie an odd delicacy..." - Elvis Mitchell, the New York Times

Great cartoon - doesn't talk down to children and is equally entertaining for adults. I l loved the way women's bodies were drawn: proud, natural and without unneccessary prudery. Definitely enjoyed watching it with my 14-year old nephew - in French!

Remember when Joseph Campbell said to follow your bliss? Well you should follow it right to Kirikou and the Sorceress. This film is an intensely joyous adventure full of spontaneity, intrigue, and humor. The story will amaze you throughout with its uplifting and meaningful symbolism and the unfurling of the story's denouement is one of the more satisfying I have ever seen.

I quite enjoyed this film. The animation was engaging and there was a good message about looking beyond the surfaces of individuals. Both the evil sorceress and Kirikou are more than they appear.

It was a totally unexpected pleasure to watch this animated work. The personalities, the animation, the foley artist work, and the story line all worked together to earn top ratings. The hard-working drive of the protagonist (and his amazing capacity to forgive) was endlessly inspiring. It is certainly not the type of movie that I usually watch, but I am glad that I didn't overlook it.

Great movie!

Nice story, is it based on a real story?

lovely!
