A Magical Feast for Eyes and Ears and Everything,
This review is from: Kirikou and the Sorceress [DVD] (DVD)
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.
