What to know

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. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for Moon Man

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (3)

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

    May 1, 2020 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    May 1, 2020 | Full Review…
  • 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…
  • 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.

  • Sentimental it is not, just charming and quaintly unassuming.

  • "Moon Man" has a healthy supply of idealism with the right subversive garnish. [Stephan] Schesch keeps the mood light and airy, even when the chips are down, maintaining a pleasant medium-up-tempo pace.
