I heard about this movie because it was listed on The thief and the cobbler's wikipedia page as another movie which took a long time to make. The story behind this movie is very interesting and I find it very touching the Paul Grimault managed to complete his vision (unlike Richard Williams). The soundtrack was incredible and fit the scenes perfectly, but the sound effects are a bit lacking (but just in a few scenes). The only complaint I have with this movie is the animation. The scenes were animated decades apart, and this is a problem because the styles do not go together well, because the older animation is leagues better than the new one. That being said I can ignore this problem because even in the new animation the backgrounds are very beautiful. The dialog is also very creative, feeling more like poetry than actual dialog (this should not surprise anyone because it was all written by Jaques Prèvert) I recommend this movie to everyone
