A set of original and folk stories in Michel Ocelot's on-off lifetime work of silhouette animation fairy tales take their inspiration from, among others, Caribbean, Meso-American, Russian and Tibetan culture.
I was reminded of this film recently and it instantly became an obsession for me to find the English dubbed copy that I remember as a child. Finally got my hands on a copy and wow this movie is better than anything I ever saw while I was young! Sometimes you go back and watch something you loved as a child and realize how terrible it was but this film sent chills through my body, each scene playing through exactly as I remembered it in perfect detail. Anyone who saw this as a child will know what I'm talking about. The level of nostalgia that comes with this fantastic animation is above anything any other film has ever had for myself. The music is absolutely epic, beautifully written and goes with the movie perfectly. The level of storytelling that this film does is amazing despite the small amount of dialogue. Truly a classic, it is unfortunate that this film is so rare to find, especially in English. If anyone is interested please contact me.
