  • Zarafa is a gorgeously delicate hand-drawn animation about the first giraffe to make the perilous journey from Africa to 19th-century Paris.

    Top Critic
  • In trying to tell an epic tale over just 78 minutes, the filmmakers sacrifice anything that might have made their film memorable.

    October 5, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This hand-drawn French adventure is a children's story in the routine template of many friends-and-villains quests, but with a fresh historical setting and a serenely subdued look.

    July 2, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Since there are giraffes in Parisian zoos, there necessarily had to be a first one, and Rémi Bezançon and Jean-Christophe Lie's Zarafa is a beautifully animated and often moving telling of how it arrived there in the early 1800s.

    July 1, 2015 | Full Review…
  • While the gorgeous widescreen landscapes have a pencil-and-aquarelle quality, the characters themselves are literally rougher-edged, a clever reminder of the hand-drawn, sketchlike quality of traditional animation.
