Adults may long for a bit more impetus in the lackadaisical narrative. But younger viewers will be entranced by the child-like wonder the Moon Man inspires in others.

It's recommended if you adore handmade children's picture books, lovely colours and compositions, trad animation and quirky humour which never, ever panders to pop culture.

There's a refreshing lack of snark to recommend Moon Man: this is a movie that has heart and imagination where most animations are happy to make do with a hippo in a tutu.

Charmingly animated but a little unfuelled in its plotting.

A lo-fi delight, blending old-school storytelling with a whiff of head-shop trippiness.

An interesting alternative to Hollywood entertainment.

The animated images are quirky-funny; the multi-accent English-language dialogue is a delight; the story has wacky charm.

Utterly delightful children's story with gorgeous storybook-style animation, a warm-hearted script, quietly quirky characters and a superb soundtrack.

Light and subtly satirical, it's a refreshing reminder that sometimes less can be more.

With a simple story and a huge amount of imagination, this gentle animated adventure feels like a blast of fresh air when compared to entertaining but formulaic Hollywood studio animation.

Ultimately, Schesch and Weber's deliberate rhythms prove to be an asset, as the lunar hero explores the wonder of this world, refusing to get roped into anybody's action-plot.
