5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute must have for anyone with kids 12 Jan 2004
This is a tremendous film, and a beautiful DVD. My son wanted to watch nothing else for the last four weeks, his enthusiasm for it was immense.
This movie is nothing like your standard cartoon offering - the story is simple and pure, the animation is crisp, the music is enchanting, there is no attempt to dress-up the story, and the representation of West African culture is pretty fair.
If you can (or your kids can) understand any French then try to watch the movie in its original language, the songs and the dialogue work much better, plus the accentation of the English dubbing is questionable (while all the accents are African they span the whole continent so it sounds very "dubbed").
The DVD pack comes with a bonus disk which is interesting and fun, but only in French.
All in all I cannot recommend this more highly. This is a great movie that kids will watch over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet African folk animation 12 July 2007
By Jay
The sweet-natured Kirikou and the Sorceress, is a French animated movie drawing on a West African tale that has an authenticity The Lion King lacks. The diminutive, preternaturally wise hero talks in his mother's womb, cuts his own umbilical cord and proceeds to save the village from an oppressive sorceress. The two-dimensional drawings with the characters usually in profile look like folk art and have the feel of a children's book. The attractive score is by the Senegalese musician Youssou N'Dour.
By the way, watch the original French version which adapts itselt to Westren African based accents as opposed to the dubbed English version which incorporates a broader range of African accents.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Magical Feast for Eyes and Ears and Everything 28 July 2006
Beautiful animation about a baby saving his village from an evil sorceress. In the same sort of vein as Spirited Away - animation that highlights the magic and wonder in the world it depicts, and a central character who wins the day by having courage in his convictions, and seeing the world through unjaded eyes. For me, this is even better than SA - it features a much more likeable hero and characters are voiced and animated with greater verve.

The movie opens with pregant mother stroking her belly. A small voice proclaims "Mother, I am ready to be born." Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best animated childrens movies ever 27 Mar 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This Senegalese cartoon film is one of the most appealing animated films of the last 10 years for both adults and children. The images are beautiful and slow-moving, a far cry from the Japanese action-loaded Pokemon stories. The music by Youssou N-Dour is beautiful but very discreet. Yet, the story has all the suspense, love, drama, humour and action you can wish for. Children will ask to watch it again and again (and so will you). If the world had more films like these for children, it might be a better place to grow up in.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best kid films I have ever watched 14 Jan 2010
By Maria
This film is a piece of art and it appeals to both kids and their parents. My daughter and I were absolutely mesmerised by the animation, the story and the music. We have watched it a few times and never tire of watching it again. It's so original and different. I wish there were more films like this for kids. There is also a sequel of this film' Kiriku and the Wild Beasts' as beautiful as this one. Absolutely recommend it, you'll not be dissapointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars As Good As If Not Better Than Disney 15 Aug 2006
The story, the animation and the music is lovely . It is refreshing to find an african children's story which is truely reflective of African life in all respects. This would be a great gift for children of african descent in any country but also for all children because it is not only immensely enjoyable but gives a very positive view of african culture.

"Kirikou est petit, mais il est mon ami"

C'est une animation merveilleuse. Il s'agit d'une histoire charmante et inspirante avec de la musique incroyable et pas oublier des personnages adorables! J'étais émerveillé quand j'étais un enfant, et aujourd'hui je reste fasciné comme si je suis un enfant. Je m'en souviens comme si c'était hier, comment Karaba la sorcière me faisait peur et comment Kirikou me faisait pleure. Ça rappelle de bon souvenir de mon enfance.

Ce conte est aussi une trés belle leçon de morale pour les enfants.. Être fier de qui vous êtes, qu'importe ce que les autres pensent de vous (si vous mesurez 10 centimètres ou 2 mètres), du moment que vous êtes vous-même et content de l'être, c'est la seule chose qui importe.

Voir, c'est croire. Vraiment. Alors achetez-le! Je vous promets, vous ne le regretterez pas.

"Kirikou n'est pas grand, mais il est valiant"

5.0 out of 5 stars kirikou 16 Mar 2011
lovely, cultural film, but Head Teacher at primary school where I teach French, said it's not suitable to show to the 7 - 11 yr old pupils because of the bare breasts (albeit cartoon ones!) - oh how prudish/English! I'm sure the French don't have a problem with it!
