This visually bold anthology of French animated stories from Michel Ocelot (who brought us the Kirikou films) uses a distinct style of animation, selected by the young narrators, for each tale. The six fairytales, set in a variety of world locations, focus on questing heroes who must prove themselves through difficult tasks. In one, a young man in an Aztec city of gold resolves to save a girl from a monster; in another, a Tibetan boy who rides a talking horse faces a king’s devious plan to trick him into lying. Complete with werewolves, magical instruments, sorcerers and mythical beasts, this captures the enchantment of storytelling.
This magical fantasy is the oldest surviving animation film in the world, telling an Arabian Nights-style story using a stunning silhouette style.
