French film 'Le Roi Et L'Oiseau' is one of the world's best animation film. Nobody can doubt this film's sheer brilliance as well as its artistic greatness as not one but three geniuses lent artistic support towards its making. It is based on the Danish short story 'Hyrdinden Og Skorstensfejeren'/The Shepherdess and the Chimney Sweep written by Hans Christian Andersen for which director Paul Grimault worked closely for many years with creative partner and maverick French poet friend Jacques Prévert. His only wish was to see this immortal tale transformed into a phenomenal animation film. In recent years, many animation directors including Japanese masters have acknowledged the influence of this masterpiece on their works. The greatness as well as the popularity of this film is immense. This is one valid reason why 'Le Roi Et L'Oiseau' continues to be one of the important elements of French culture. It is believed that it is so important for people from all walks of life that its viewing ought to be made compulsory for people learning French language. 'The king and the mocking bird' can be construed as a film for children but it can also be appreciated by adults. The production values are high for this film and its message of the victory of good over evil needs to be understood by many viewers. Lastly, as an acclaimed animation film which provides valuable moral science insights for children, 'The King and the Mocking Bird' is a film for all those who believe in ethical dimensions of fair play and justice.
