nice sci-fi cartoon.
24 December 2004 | by (The outskirts of Paris) – See all my reviews

Because of budget and time reasons, this cartoon, is not as good as he could have been. Yet this cartoon amazed me when I was a kid. it is very atmospheric, it's a good short sci-fi cartoon...

René Laloux is well-known as well for "la planète Sauvage" and "Gandahar" aka "lightyears" in the US ; Moebius (alias Jean Giraud) is a well-known comic strip drawer, he made for instance "l'incal" (check it out if you like Sci-Fi comic strips) and he collaborated on several well-known sci-fi movie (recently the 5th element).

you should check it out, despite its flaws it is nice sci-fi moment.

Be prepared for a quite surprising ending ...
