Movie Info

The tiny Kirikou is born into an African village upon which a sorceress called Karaba has cast a terrible spell: the spring has dried up, the villagers are being blackmailed, the men of the village have either been kidnapped or have mysteriously disappeared. He wants to rid the village of the curse so he goes on a voyage to the Forbidden Mountain, where the Wise Man of the Mountain, who knows of Karaba and her secrets, awaits him.

    An enjoyable and simple animation with an honest moral lesson, though clearly made for very small children. It makes for a good time, especially in its second act, but the ending could have been better.

    Pocket-sized Kirikou, top contender for hero-with-the-cutest-bum-in-the-world, sorts out his villagers woes and saves the day. The plot flows along like being read to from a much-loved storybook and there's lots of rich colours and pretty music by Youssou N'Dour. Fabfabfabfabfab...

    This is a wonderful and fabulously unique story for the kiddies. The only problem is finding it. It may take some searching but it will be worth it.
