Cherished French animator Michel Ocelot returns to his popular series of Kirikou films with yet another dazzling animated film that’s a striking alternative to so many contemporary animated movies. In keeping with his other fairy-tale inspired films this new film tells the further adventures of his hero, Kirikou, in his village in Africa, as this inventive and resourceful child helps his fellow villagers overcome a number of difficulties. Kirikou’s kindness and energy win out every time. The visual style of the film is quite beautiful and the story’s focus on the relationship between a child and their community makes for essential viewing.
