Kahlil Gibran's the Prophet is a thrillingly lovely adaptation of the classic text, albeit one that doesn't quite capture the magic of its source material. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet

  • Aug 22, 2015
    The obvious audience for this are devotees of Kahlil Gibran. He is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao Tzu, so he obviously has his admirers. If an array of animated shorts depicting his words sounds captivating, then I'd surely recommend this to you. The series of 8 videos presented here are all of noble quality - pretty images with spoken word narration. A couple have music to accompany them. My favorite was Nina Paley's "On Children". The shadow puppets of Indonesia inspire a mesmerizing visual tableau accompanied by a song by Damien Rice. It presents a pregnant female archer who shoots an arrow into the belly of another pregnant woman, thus giving birth to another human being. It's utterly hypnotic. The entire movie was produced by actress Salma Hayek, who also gives voice to one of the characters, and supervised by director Roger Allers (The Lion King). The talent behind the camera is considerable and the intentions are clearly heartfelt. It's a pleasant diversion, but far from necessary viewing. For die-hard fans of Kahlil Gibran's poetry, however, it should prove enchanting. fastfilmreviews.com

    Whether being based on some piece of classic source material merits enough fidelity to even emulate or transcend the original work. I found this animated feature based on Kahlil Gibran's poetry to be a beautifully animated and touching story. The main plot is concentrated on various character drama at play within it's unique setting, mainly coming to terms with their lives and lessons. The main plot however is distracted by a number of poetic expositions, which were given to various other animation directors utilizing various animation forms that almost completely outshine the main story. Nonetheless the visual structure and subject matter at play is enough to recommend this film.
