TAn enchanting, life-affirming animation of love and redemption, made with no small measure of maturity and care - along with an all too rare respect for the art of storytelling.

This charming animated feature is a welcome antidote to the relentless cutesiness inherent in so many child-oriented toons.

It's a great package: salutary, short (74 minutes) and sweet.

Kirikou and the Sorceress's surprising honesty about the banality of evil makes the movie -- even with all its magic -- feel truly authentic.

Definitely a sunny spot in the mire of frenetic, violent and often dopey cartoon films produced by Hollywood.

It's more a piece to admire than to be involved by, yet it's easy to imagine children hypnotized by a hero tinier than they are when Kirikou is continually loaded into the VCR.
