Review
A beautiful elaboration of a Senegalese folk tale; Kirikou summons himself from his mother's womb, only 10 cms tall, but walking, talking, questioning and quickly setting out on a quest to defeat the wicked sorceress who has cursed his people. Kirikou is a beautifully rendered tale with African art as its benchmark and using a flat two-dimensional look. A delight for the children and one that us older, saggier ones can enjoy as well.
