Critic Reviews for Kirikou and the Sorceress

Kirikou and the Sorceress's surprising honesty about the banality of evil makes the movie -- even with all its magic -- feel truly authentic.
Audience Reviews for Kirikou and the Sorceress
An enjoyable animation that is simple and has an honest moral lesson, though clearly addressed to very small children. It makes for a good time, especially in the second act, but the end could have been better.
