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

Critic Reviews for Moon Man

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (1)

Adults may long for a bit more impetus in the lackadaisical narrative. But younger viewers will be entranced by the child-like wonder the Moon Man inspires in others.

Quirky animated movie has positive messages, mild scares.

March 1, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's recommended if you adore handmade children's picture books, lovely colours and compositions, trad animation and quirky humour which never, ever panders to pop culture.

February 21, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | 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.

December 30, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A lo-fi delight, blending old-school storytelling with a whiff of head-shop trippiness.
