I remember this movie in almost every scene in my head. The version I had was in English and was of course translated to "The King And The Bird." I watched it tirelessly as a child after my mom picked up the tape from somewhere. I could even repeat the bird's soliloquy at the beginning off by heart. The animation and the story are both excellent. I think it's one of the finest pieces of animation ever created. Sadly my tape of this great movie went missing years ago. If anyone knows where I may find another copy, preferably the English version but the French or German version will do despite my lack of understanding of the two languages, I would greatly appreciate it. Seems that this is quite an obscure title and very hard to find despite its winning the Dullec prize in the 80s when it came out.
