Moon Man

Critics Consensus

Its deliberate pacing is certainly an acquired taste, but Moon Man's enchanting animation style and subversive flourishes make it a refreshingly off-beat yarn.

Movie Info

Synopsis: The man on the moon is bored. One day, he hitches a ride to Earth on the tails of a passing comet - an "attack from outer space"t hat sets the alarm bells ringing in the President's headquarters - and starts to explore the fantastical creatures and sights of a new planet. But all is not well - the Moon Man's absence from his post means that all the world's children are unable to sleep. Before the President can capture him, they must join forces to return him to his rightful place in the sky. Based on the children's book "Moon Man" by Tomi Ungerer. (c) Tribeca

  • This has the curious semi-adult tone of many European animations and the story moves too slowly for childish appetites.

  • Stephan Schesch's feature debut remains true to Ungerer's drawings, but the narrative has been expanded a tad beyond the patience of wee ones, and lacks enough satirical bite to make it a cult film for adults.

  • This hand-drawn German-Irish-French co-production is a calm, kindhearted, visually inventive ode to friendship - and the ideal alternative to the latest batch of abrasive big-screen cartoons.

    May 1, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The film's energy waxes and wanes, and it lacks a strong emotional hook, but it's never less than engaging and often, in its low-key way, dazzling.

    May 1, 2020 | Full Review…
  • An interesting alternative to Hollywood entertainment.

    December 26, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The animated images are quirky-funny; the multi-accent English-language dialogue is a delight; the story has wacky charm.
